Abstract/ Summary

For several years now, Wayland D. Hand, Director of the Center for the Study of Comparative Folklore and Mythology at the University of California (Los Angeles), has been working toward completion of a comprehensive Dictionary of American Popular Beliefs and Superstitions. However, in order that such a work may be as authoritative as possible, Dr. Hand has asked organizations and individuals in the various states to canvass their regions and publish tributary volumes first. The Northeast Folklore Society is the logical organization to do the work here in Maine; therefore let us collect as much material as we can and plan to publish a volume to be titled "Popular Beliefs and Superstitions from Maine" as a future issue of Northeast Folklore.
