Biography

Samuel S. Yasgur (January 9, 1942 – June 23, 2016) was an attorney; Sullivan County, New York official; and the son of Max Yasgur, who leased land on his 600 acres (2.4 km) dairy farm in Bethel, New York for the Woodstock Music & Art Festival in August 1969. Yasgur said that his "consultations with his father" played a crucial role in the concert coming to Bethel. He grew up on his father's farm, and was a graduate of Cornell University and the University of Chicago School of Law.

Yasgur was a 27-year-old assistant district attorney in Manhattan when his father allowed the Woodstock Festival to take place on his land. The concert had just been barred from taking place at the Orange County town of Wallkill, NY. The Woodstock Festival took place from August 15 to 18, 1969.

Yasgur went on to become an attorney at Hall Dickler, and also served as Westchester County Attorney.

Yasgur wrote a book about his father, Max B. Yasgur: The Woodstock Festival’s Famous Farmer, which was self-published in August 2009.
