Abstract: One of a series of brochures honoring the men who made Southwestern great. John Quincy Wolf, Jr. was an English professor at Southwestern at Memphis (now Rhodes College) and a self-trained folklorist. He began recording regional folk musicians in the 1950s and discovered several important singers, including Jimmy Driftwood. He also recorded a number of Memphis area blues and jug band musicians like Bukka White, Gus Cannon, and Furry Lewis. In the 1960s Wolf recorded many shape-note singers in north Mississippi and Alabama.
