1. Folklorist Alan Lomax, explaining how he fell into his craft: I saw that the job of a folklorist was to make a bridge between people  who had no voice and the big world of communication. That’s  what I did for the first half of my life, was simply run with a  recording machine and record. In the West Indies, in Spain, in Great  Britain — and to publish the results because this was the way people  could learn that other folks were out there, just as interesting as they  were.”
