Subject: E. C. Perrow info and bio

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had a bio on song collector E.C. Perrow. I know he wrote some article for the JOAFL in the Before 1920.

How would I be able to view those editions?

How about his books?

Richie

The main book was "Songs and Rhymes from the South," E. C. Perrow.

Then there were articles in the JOAFL. I know he was an English teacher at the University of Louisville for a while.

I was just wondering what his connection to the Hindman School was. I guess that started around 1900 and Josiah Combs began his collecting career then. Kittredge was involved. Then there were other Kentucky collectors including Niles who I assume were later.

Is this the same Perrow (Ebon) who moved to Georgia for health reasons, and became a surveyor of some fame? His wife, an accomplished musician from Boston, was not comfortable in the local culture. wwwright@bellsouth.net

Old issues of the Journal of American Folklore are available now at Google Books:

I can't find Volume 28 of JAFL, which should contain the third segment of Perrow's work.

Links to this and a number of other books and articles here- "Internet Resources: traditional song":
http://www.folk-network.com/directory/links/song-collections_books.html.

For some reason the links to Perrow and some other books (all 20th C.?) come up as "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."

Joe's links to Parts 1 and 2 of Perrow work.

Is some copyright infringement rule interfering?

Hi,

Some new info has been posted at the Houghton Library.

I've written a bio probably the most comprehensive one so far.

http://bluegrassmessengers.com.temp.realssl.com/e-c-perrow-.aspx


Any info about his later life in Georgia? His short privately published books?

Here's the complete Songs and Rhymes on my site:
