Journal of the English Folk Dance and Song Society

   Launched in 1932, when the *English Folk Dance and Song Society was formed, by the amalgamation of the *Folk-Song Society and the *English Folk Dance Society, and thus replacing the journals of these two societies. It ran until December 1964 (vol. 9 no. 5), when it in turn was replaced by the *Folk Music Journal. Its content was mainly descriptive, comparative, and historical, rather than theoretical, but many of its articles are still required reading. Editors: Frank Howes (1932-45), Margaret *Dean-Smith (1946-51), Sara Jackson (1952-60), Russell Wortley (1961-4).
