Austin and Alta Fife, Wayland D. Hand, William A. Wilson, Hal Cannon, Carol Edison, Wallace Stegner and Juanita Brooks are just some of the prominent Utah folklorists pictured in this collection of photographs from the 1930s to the present. Digitized from originals housed at the Utah Folk Arts Program in Salt Lake City, many of these images also appear in David Stanley's Folklore in Utah: A History and Guide to Resources (Utah State University Press, 2004).
For more information about Utah folklorists, see the Folklore Society of Utah Collection (FOLK COLL 28), the official repository for the Folklore Society of Utah housed at Utah State University's Fife Folklore Archive. Since 1958, the Society has promoted and nurtured the study of folklore by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the folklore of Utah and surrounding areas.
Pam Pierce, graduate intern in the Fife Folklore Archives during Spring 2010 compiled the descriptive information for the images.
