Nils-Arvid Bringéus provides a detailed analysis of the founder of folklore reseach in Sweden, Professor Carl Wilhelm von Sydow (1878–1952). We are introduced to a fascinating personality and able to follow his persevering struggle to gain acceptance for a new academic discipline. Von Sydow took a highly active interest in international cooperation, not least within the field of folktale research. He tought at both Lund and Uppsala universities, establishing a taxonomy within the study of folklore that has been of great importance.
