Folklore Class Reports, 1958-1999

MS F.16

Contents: items

Mary Celestia Parler's students wrote class reports on an extensive range of topics in folk and popular culture. Some are based on field interviews and personal contact and others on research in primary and secondary sources. The range of topics is broad, from traditional subjects like folk medicine and superstitions to histories of small towns in Arkansas and urban and campus lore. Produced before the advent of copying machines, the papers sometimes contain original photographs or other documents, including material craft objects and sound recordings. Additions to MS F.16 were made by Dr. Robert Cochran, professor of English, 1976- .
