GUEST,Pseudonymous The current state of folk music in UK (1945* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 25 Oct 19

Reference: Child's article on folk ballads for Johnson's Universal Cyclopedia 1900.

Reprinted by the Journal of Folklore Research, Vol 31, no 1-3 triple issue. Indiana University Press.

Don't take anybody's word for it: go and look it up. It's free on JSTOR.   

Given that I have read this article several times, there was nothing that needed correcting. And no amount of autobiography of any poster is for me a convincing argument that Child said no such thing as what he says in this article.
