Subject: Obit: Carole Rose Livingston
From: Suffet
Date: 16 Jul 03 - 12:05 AM

Greetings:

It is with great sadness that I report the death of a dear friend, Carole Rose Livingston, Professor of English at Brooklyn College, City University of New York, and author of the two-volume collection British Broadside Ballads of the Sixteenth Century. Carole passed away Monday, July 14, 2003, from the effects of a stroke she suffered early in 2002. She never fully recovered and had been confined to hospitals or nursing homes ever since.

Carole Rose Livingston was a member of the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club, the Peoples Music Network, and the Peoples Voice Cafe. In addition to being a scholar, she was also a fine poet, singer, and songwriter. I am certain more information and tributes will be forthcoming. Let me just say that since the prayers of an infidel like myself count exactly as much as those of the truest believer, I pray that Carole now rests in peace.

--- Steve

Thomas, this is a thread from 2003. I suspect if there had been any further volumes to be released they would have been published by now.

Suffet, I'm sorry none of us saw this/posted when your friend Carole died.

Phyllis Q, thanks for adding to Suffet's remembrances.

For Thomas Stern: I found the following, referring to the two volume set. I have not yet found any copies of volume 2:

"Booknews
The first catalogue of all extant British broadside ballads of the 16th century. English and Scottish ballads are treated separately; within each division the extant sheets are arranged chronologically. The entry for each sheet provides the date, full title, first two lines, refrain, and tune title; author's name and publisher's imprint listings in the Stationers' registers and in Hyder Edward Rollins' Analytical index to the Registers' ballad entries; Short-title catalogue number; location, collection, and shelf-mark; duplicates and other printed and manuscript editions; other catalogue entries and other scholarship; and other information. A long essay discusses the provenance and proofreading of the works, their popularity and audience, and treachery and treason in them. Volume 2 will be an edition of the texts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)"
