Thread Name: Honorary doctorate for m.carthy
Subject: RE: Honorary doctorate for m.carthy
I have an 'earned' doctorate, a PhD, but I certainly don't begrudge Martin Carthy any number of 'honorary' doctorates. He has made a significant contribution to knowledge in the field of *English* folk music, one more important than many dry old dissertations, the only purpose of which was to get 'Dr' in front of someone's name.
