Abstract

With the passing of Haim Schwarzbaum on November 11, 1983, the international folklore community lost one of its most erudite members. In light of his long list of publications (Ganuz 1984) and his active participation in international meetings, it would surprise many that Haim Schwarzbaum never completed his formal university education or held an academic position. He researched and wrote his numerous studies at the end of his workday at a government office, lacking the convenience of a university library and of student assistance. For him folklore scholarship was a labor of love.
