Texas Folklore Society by Francis Edward Abernethy( )

26 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume I of this history chronicles the collecting and publishing from 1909 to 1943. The second volume to the Texas Folklore Society history covers from the McCarthy era to the end of the wild and woolly sixties. Includes the publishing history of the TFS books, anecdotes about the gatherings of the Society (including Hermes Nye starting the tradition of the hootenanny at Texas Folklore Society meetings in 1956), and the emphasis on singing beginning at Society gatherings. The final volume begins with the move from Wilson Hudson's editorship at the University of Texas to F. E. Abernethy's editorship at Stephen F. Austin State University: "We moved during the burnt-out end of August, Wilson and I ... We sweated and cussed some as we packed the Society's materials in cardboard boxes and carried them out to the station wagon parked behind Parlin Hall. We took down the pictures of Lomax and Payne and Thompson and some Cisneros sketches ... Frank Dobie's old felt hat with a turkey feather in the band was sitting on a filing cabinet, so we put it in. Very gently we loaded a box of Mody's paisanos, five or six of them ... And the Society's publications ... that stretched back to Stith Thompson's Volume I in 1916 and make up our umbilicus, the visible chain of the Society's being, that makes us all a part of it from its inception in 1909."
