New Book Draws on Folklore Archives Materials
A new book by Dr. Patricia Averill, Camp Songs, Folk Songs, which draws on undergraduate student collections in the Randall V. Mills Archives of Northwest Folklore here at the University of Oregon, has recently been published. Dr. Averill also contacted a number of camps in Oregon as part of her research. The book will be acquired by the Randall V. Mills Archives of Northwest Folklore, and interested individuals can find out more about the author and the book at Dr. Averill’s website.
The Randall V. Mills Archives of Northwest Folklore is a repository of fieldwork collections and research materials on folklife in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond. Collections include books and periodicals; student and faculty research papers and fieldwork projects; fieldwork photographs and sound recordings; and documentary videos.
As part of the UO Folklore Program, the Archives supports students in the study of folklore and provides training opportunities in the management of cultural collections. The Archives also makes collections available to the public for study and appreciation.
