Biographical history

MacEdward Leach (1897-1967) was one of North America's most widely respected folklorists. Among his many merits, he was scholar of literature, folklore and language. His work greatly influenced the development of folklore as an academic discipline, and introduced subsequent scholars and folk enthusiasts to the vast diversity of North American culture

Between 1949 and 1951 he took a series of trips to Cape Breton and mainland N.S to collect songs and stories from Gaelic tradition bearers.
