Good Friends and Bad Enemies. Robert Winslow Gordon and the Study of American Folksong.

Publisher: Illinois UP [1986]. Music in American Life.
Publications of the American Folklore Society, New Series. xiii, 263 p., index, photos, 23.5 cm. "In this first full biography of folklorist Robert Winslow Gordon (1888-1961), Kodish explores the range of one man's vision of folk culture. In the process, she illuminates the assumptions of gender, class, race, and "otherness" that conditioned the imagination of many in the 1920s who sought to define a new American literature and culture. Best remembered as the founder of the Archive of American Folk Song at the Library of Congress and author of a popular column for Adventure magazine, Gordon was also an outstanding and innovative (if maverick) fieldworker, collector, correspondent, and scholar."
