Abstract/ Summary

On the evening of March 19, 1984. a large crowd of Island folklore enthusiasts braved a snowy night and the threat of a power blackout to attend a lecture by "Sandy" Ives, author of books on Island folksong makers Larry Gorman and Lawrence Doyle. The event was memorable; Professor Ives shared his subject with new friends and old, told the stories and sang the songs. The lecture was part of the Second Annual Island Lecture Series. "Leaving Home: Migration from P.E.I."
