The Folklorist and the Community.
Sackett, Marjorie
Evidence indicates that the results of folklorists' studies have had a positive effect on the relationship among ethnic groups as well as on college-community relationships in Hays, Kansas. Research based on 64 interviews of members of the community and the college shows that members of the German-Russian ethnic group have a notably increased pride in their heritage, while other members of the community now share in many of the German-Russian group's customs and enjoy their food. In addition, members of other ethnic groups who are new in Hays feel ready acceptance by both the community and the college. (JM)
