Identifier: clels4

Summary of contents

A series of correspondence between LC and Andrew R. T. Campbell of Octopus Publishing Group Ltd. regarding Campbell’s publication of ‘Bawdy New Zealand Songs’. The topic, Campbell highlights, is one that LC broaches in ‘Songs We Sang’ and he therefore asks LC to contribute some of the songs as well as a chapter of writing about them. The correspondence occurred when LC was at the Smithsonian Institute in California. The date range is November 1987 – August 1988.
