Doc Rowe

I'd like to acknowledge publicly the debt I owe to Doc Rowe, who remains one of the most inspirational fieldworkers I've ever had the pleasure to meet, as well as being thoroughly good company. He continues to add to one of the most important post-war collections and documentations of folklife in the British Isles, and long may he do so.

The photo was taken in Sheffield, 2007, and shows Doc (left) receiving the Coote Lake Medal from Professor Will Ryan, then President of the Folklore Society.
