Abstract:I have been asked by the Editor to introduce the Society to the readers of Folk Life. To do so, I must be, briefly, personal. My work in Welsh folk life studies began forty years ago: I soon discovered that there was no-one with whom I could discuss all aspects of my research problems, no journal devoted to this aspect of research and no means of meeting regularly similar workers in other parts of Great Britain. During the 1930's papers with some archaeological interest were accepted by the archaeological journals, others of anthropological interest by Man. All workers in the same field published in any journal prepared to accept their work.
