The purpose of this study is to trace the history of the study of folklore from its origins in Europe through its development in the United States. Particular emphasis is laid on the part organized education has played in this development, the attitudes organized education has showed in relation to the study, those persons in American education who have furthered the study, and how folklore has been and is being used in the curriculum of the secondary school and college.
