This is a real long shot, but a guy called Colin Wharton wrote a PhD thesis called 'Folk Songs from the North Riding' at the University of Leeds in 1962. Sadly Leeds have lost their copy, and I can't trace it anywhere else. I figured somebody somewhere might know the guy

I think it is traditional to provide finished copies to one's thesis advisors. You might check with the U of L and see if you can find out who they were, in the event your search for Mr Wharton doesn't pan out.

I tried Friends Reunited for you, but they're not listing anyone of that name. Sorry...

Hi Red Max.
If you're still out there and still looking after 7 years, I too am interested in this topic and am hot on the trail. If you want to PM me we can perhaps pool our resources.

Hi Steve when I noticed the name Colin Wharton it was a name I seemed to remember from the past. It was for that reason I took a look at this thread. As I am unable to put a face to the name I think that your best bet could be Brian Senior or Kevin Young. Still racking my brain as I Typo this could it be a name associated with the Topic or is it someone who has written something for Tykes News. Colin Wharton name certainly has stuck in my head so he must have been someone who cropped up quite often. I'm going to post this and see if his name apears on the friends of the Topic FC list on Facebook.

Hi Tyke
We have established that by the early 70s he was a deputy head down south. He would be about 70 now. Being based at Leeds as a PhD student in the 60s he may well have gone to the Topic. I have contact details of a probable candidate so we might have nailed this one. I need to check with LU to see if they want to get hold of a copy. There are some delicate politics involved here.

Tyke - Topic committee included Ronnie Wharton. That may be the name you recall.
Quack!

If I remember the story correctly, there is a Huddleston connection. Didn't he collect with Mary before she recruited Nigel?

Just seen this so don't know how relevant this search is. The Colin Wharton you're looking for is my dad. Can I help you?

Ruairidh,
You're thinking of someone else, but there is a Huddleston connection.

Carolyn,
Welcome. I'd be interested to hear your dad's take on the matter. It would be useful to our researches to have access to your dad's researches of the 60s as we are working on a second edition of the Huddleston Collection and your dad recorded some of the same people the Huddlestons recorded.

Hi Steve
He's away til the end of next week so when he's back I'll tell him about this. He'll be astonished! But I'm sure he'd be happy to help you if he can. How best can he communicate with you? He does use email (even though he's 72!) or phone? Let me know and I'll pass on the info.
