In 1964 Dorothy Day wrote in THE CATHOLIC WORKER about the Bread and Puppet project: "At one of our Friday night meetings Scott Nearing very generously gave us his time to talk to us about Socialism and Latin America...Scott Nearing's granddaughter was there (she is about to have a baby) and she told me about Pete Schumann, her husband, who has a studio at 148 Delancey street which they call the Bread and Puppet Museum and where they have a show each Saturday night at nine."
