Winter

Although the occasional anthropologist made his way through the University of Virginia (Eric Wolf wrote his masterpiece Sons of the Shaking Earth while here) the first serious anthropologist to plant himself in the Lawn of Thomas Jefferson’s University was Edward H. Winter. Born in 1923, Winter graduated from Harvard in 1944.  He was a LT(J.g) in the Navy from 1944-1946, serving in the Pacific.

Perdue, Jr.

I came to the academic study of folklore by a somewhat peculiar route. My mother was a traditional ballad singer and I grew up singing her songs, learning others, having my head filled and my behavior guided by traditional stories, proverbs, riddles, superstitions, and other forms of folklore. Years later after service in the Army Security Agency during the Korean War, and marriage to Nan, I attended the University of California, Berkeley, and majored in geology.
