Hoot -

Yes, you are misreading me - as a longstanding collector myself I'm obviously not suggesting that there was no material to collect.

What I pointing out was that in the 1930's leading figures in the EFDSS believed that there was no one to collect from and that in any case, collecting "was unnecessary, since the ground had already been well covered and recent re-collections had been of no material value" (see exchanges in "English Folk Dance & Song Society Reports" for 1937 and 1938.
