Thread Name: OBIT: Yiddish folklorist Ruth Rubin (1906-2000)
Subject: RE: Yiddish songs folklorist Ruth Rubin
As some of you know, I've been getting the complete "Rainbow Quest" series from the library over the last few months. Just saw the one with Ruth Rubin. It's disconcerting to see someone for the first time looking healthy and hale at about 45 and three days later read that she's passed on in her 90s. Good singer.
