I haven't seen the video, or at least I haven't seen it in a long
time, and now I'm interested to see it again. But for the record,
Alan Lomax was quite a controversial figure in the academic
community. Although his father and mentor, John Lomax, had a
doctorate in English literature, Alan never even completed a
bachelor's degree, leaving school when he was still a teenager to
assist with his father's folklore projects. And there are some
scholars who have faulted both Lomaxes for "indiscriminately"
collecting folklore without enough documentation about the
communities where it originated.
