Abstract: This volume - issued a little belatedly for the year 2001 - is somewhat different from its predecessors in that (i) its contents have been more shaped and delayed, as we have tried to take account of the intended recipient's death occurring when we were about to go to press and at that stage with much less material about her publications and manuscript collections; and (ii) the fact that it was decided to publish in 'Australian Folklore' a number of the papers given at the National Biennial Conference of 2000 in the next two issues of the journal (i.e. No. 16 and No. 17). It may also be noted that in general, as the Conference itself made very clear, it and the journal are more and more concerned with Folklore Study done in Australia and its region, and not totally focussed on Australian collecting of, and research into, material largely generated by the societies of this continent. This change or decision to include (revised) some of the 2000 Biennial Folklore conference papers was approved not least since these will, thereby, be the more easily and widely located in libraries worldwide, rather than their being published in an irregular format and circulation, as wall the earlier Proceedings of their Conference. (And, as would be noted elsewhere, the Conference title had the more Comprehensive wording Folklore/Folklife, both because of the greater international use of the last term and from its wider use in Victoria, especially, to refer to aspects beyond the verbal or printed form.)
