A folklorist's progress : reflections of a scholar's life by Stith Thompson( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stith Thompson (1885-1976), often called the father of U.S. folklore, completed "A Folklorist's Progress" in 1956. This reflection on his life leads the reader on a journey from his birthplace in Kentucky to the universities of Wisconsin, Harvard, California, Texas, and finally Indiana University. Throughout his career he interacted with scholars throughout the world. His life story reveals his influence on the direction of American folklore scholarship in this century, as he moved the study of folklore from a romantic approach to a "scientific" approach. He helped establish folklore on firm academic footing with one of the most important results of his research efforts--the now classic Motif-Index of Folklore-Literature. This edition is enhanced with photographs and facsimiles, excerpts from his wife Louise Thompson's travel diaries, and glosses identifying the main accomplishments of some fifty folklorists and kindred scholars mentioned in the text
