Overview


Francis Edward “Ab” Abernethy served as the Secretary-Editor of the Texas Folklore Society for over three decades, managing the organization’s daily operations and helping it grow. He edited two dozen volumes of the PTFS series and wrote the three volumes of the Society’s history. This publication of the Texas Folklore Society celebrates Ab Abernethy’s years of leadership in collecting, preserving, and presenting the folklore of Texas and the Southwest. The prefaces to some of the more memorable edited volumes are included, along with articles he wrote on music, teaching, anecdotes about historical figures and events, and “cultural” examinations of the things we hold dear. In all, these pieces tell us what was important to Ab. In part, these topics are also what was—and still is—important to the Texas Folklore Society.

"Occasional black-and-white photographs and an index enrich this insightful tribute and tour of the contributions that Francis Abernethy made to the Texas Folklore Society. Thirty-Three Years, Thirty-Three Works is a joy to browse, worthy of extended reflection. Highly recommended."--Midwest Book Review
