The Role of the Romanies

This chapter describes the collections of ‘Gypsy’ materials at Liverpool University Library, which comprise two separate but interrelated sections: the Gypsy Lore Society Archive and the Scott Macfie Gypsy Collections. It analyzes the scholarship, organization, passion, fieldwork, and collections of the Gypsylorists, from John Sampson and Scott Macfie to Dora Yates and Yaron Matras. The Gypsy Collections include photographs, old woodcuts, manuscripts, press cuttings, posters, books, and edicts, and constitute a mixture of ‘erudition and romanticism’ — institutional recognition of the culture and history of the Romanies being considered worthy of appropriate storage, display, and memorialization.
