Subject: Folklore: Contacting Iona Opie
From: Floksnog
Date: 05 Apr 11 - 05:45 AM

Hello, I am writing a blog about westcountry folklore - http://westcountryfolklore.blogspot.com/

I would love to be able to contact Iona Opie about maybe including a few rhymes from her book "The Lore and Language of Schoolchildren"- Does anyone know how I might go about contacting her? Her publishers don't seem to exist any more!

Thanks

A long shot, but the Robert Opie Museum in Wigan might know.

Sadly I believe that Iona Opie doesn't exist anymore either, neither does Peter. Their son runs a museum of advettising and packaging.

I know Peter is deceased but Iona lived in Alton and she may still be there.
There's an old thread here

that may give you a contact to ask.
My friend Lionel is still playing but they're not on the net and snail mail from and to NZ is rather slow. I don't know if that phone number would help - if he lives in Alton and Iona lived there too, I'm sure their paths would have crossed.
I can't see any obit on the net.

Hello, I work at the Museum of Brands (which is in London now). If you would like to send over your phone number and details of the request, I'll print off and pass on to Robert who can pass the request on to Mrs Opie. Please include phone numbers as neither uses email.

thanks
