Abstract/ Summary

The 1962 issue of Northeast Folklore is being edited now. It will consist of a series of six or seven Märchen, several animal tales, a ghost story, and a few songs, all told and sung by Wilmot MacDonald of Glenwood, New Brunswick. Interestingly enough, Helen Creighton and I found that we had both collected exactly the same stories from Wilmot at different times and under different circumstances. Therefore we hope to include both versions of at least one tale, and careful comparisons will be made for all the others. We have barely scratched the surface of Wilmot's repertoire, but since so little good Märchen material has been discovered in the Northeast (except of course for the French tradition) it seemed important to get this material out as soon as possible. You should have the issue in your hands sometime in March.
