A. L. Lloyd and the English Folk Song Revival, 1934-44
F. David Gregory outlines the genesis and contents of A.L. Lloyd's 1944 history of English folk song,The Singing Englishman. Focusing on Lloyd's working-class childhood, subsequent jobs in Australia, London and Antarctica, contact with A.L. Morton, studies at the British A4useuin, leftist journalism, and BBC broadcasts, Gregory counters criticisms of Lloyd's writings by Maud Karpeles and Vic Gwninon and demonstrates Lloyd 's importance for the post-1945 Revival.
