Studies in Folklore, in Honor of Distinguished Service Professor Stith Thompson

Excerpt

The seventeen articles which appear in this volume represent only a portion of the material which was offered to honor Professor Stith Thompson. When the book was first planned, requests to participate in it came from scholars all over the world. It thus became unhappily obvious at the very first that the editor would have to exercise some power of limitation if the collection were to be fitted into the size of a normal book. This was indeed a difficult task, for all of the many who wished to contribute were scholars of considerable worth, all could claim friendship with Professor Thompson, and more than a few expressed such affection and such a sense of obligation for the help which he had given them at one time or another that to reject their articles called for a constant realization that the number of pages had to be restricted.
