New York Folklore Spring, 1949:
This issue of the folklore journal collects truth, fiction, and those stories in-between, that being the nature of the trade. We have stories told around the cracker barrel in Lisle, a recollection of the hop-picking season and those who worked it, a "life" of Chief Tammany which includes how he picked the tiger as the symbol of some of his Native American followers, a brief summary of the lawsuits to recover the land of Anneke Jans by her real or claimed descendants, ballads written about the fatal smogs of Donora, Pennsylvania in 1948, tall tales told by an idiosyncratic New York farm hand, and notable epitaphs. Not ex-lib, nice shape
