Abstract: This issue of 'Australian Folklore' follows the editorial policy of No. 8 (1993) in endeavouring to publish the work of as wide as possible a range of scholars, collectors and experts in particular aspects of the vast field of Australian folkloric studies. It is also pleasing that we have been able this year to attract pieces from distinguished scholars in four overseas countries, including a version of one recently presented in Lithuania. When about half the articles were in hand, it was realized that 1994 was Russel Ward's 80th Year and it was resolved that he be asked if this journal could be dedicated to him, a suggestion which he graciously accepted. Hugh Anderson has supplied a most appropriate tribute to Russel, one inspired by a friendship of almost forty years. Three other scholars known to him - Ken Inglis, Noel MacLachlan and Gerald Pocius - have also referred to his work in their present contributions, while from London, Jacqueline Simpson describes English social changes very much akin to those which he has chronicled.
