Notice biographique

Robert C. Cosbey received his B.A. and M.A. from Columbia University and his Ph.D. from Ohio State University. He joined the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus, as Professor of English in 1966. From 1969 to 1974 he served as Associate Dean of Arts and Science. Dr. Cosbey's chief area of interest was in folklore, oral history, and oral tradition. He conducted research on the history of folk music for a radio program in Chicago and for the CBC, and participated in several oral history organizations and projects. The culmination of his investigations into how skipping songs are transmitted from generation to generation was his book 'All in Together Girls: Skipping in Regina, Saskatchewan', published in 1980. Dr. Cosbey retired from the University of Regina in 1982 and was named Professor Emeritus.
