The Frank C. Brown Collection of NC Folklore: Vol. V: The Music of the Folk Songs
Newman Ivey White, Jan Philip Schinhan
Duke University Press, Apr 29, 1977 - Social Science - 687 pages
Frank 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.
