DIVFrank C. Brown organized the North Carolina Folklore Society in 1913. Both Dr. Brown and the Society collected stores from individuals&—Brown through his classes at Duke University and through his summer expeditions in the North Carolina mountains, and the Society by interviewing its members&—and also levied on the previous collections made by friends and members of the Society. The result was a large mass of texts and notes assembled over a period of nearly forty years and covering every aspect of local tradition./div
