Sydney Race (Col.)
[Collection of Folk Plays from Notts.]
*Local Studies Division, Nottinghamshire County Library, Angel Row, Nottingham
Sydney Race was a minor Notts., collector, active in the mid 1920s. His
collecting was solely by correspondence, and in this way he collected two
complete play texts - Bagthorpe, and Cropwell Bishop, Notts. - plus several
other fragments of information from Notts., and Leics. This together with some
locally published material, he used to write several newspaper articles in the
mid 1920s and late 1940s. Surprisingly, he never appears to have made contact
with other collectors who were active at that time - A.S.Buxton and
Col. mid 1920s
