 Last Cavalier: the Life and Times of John A. Lomax 1867-1948 - Book Review Folklore - Find Articles
Lomax had to fight hard for position and recognition, and he constantly had to reconcile his collecting activities with the need to make a living.
For all his contradictions, Lomax retained for most of his life a sure touch as collector that set singers (perhaps especially the fl singers he has been accused of patronising) at ease, and in many cases earned their friendship.
Much of the John Lomax story now appears deeply ironic, as even the hegemonic American folklore academy is becoming aware of profound and inescapable issues of reflexivity and the like; if "cavalier" seems right, John Lomax was surely not the last.
