Truman’s contingent at the Missouri Folklore Society’s meeting taking place Nov. 3-5 in St. Genevieve, Mo., included folklore minors Jamie Bentley and Josh Bentley and professors of English Betsy Delmonico, Barb Price and Adam Davis. Price presented “Dr. Sappington’s Cemeteries: Separate and Unequal” and Davis discussed the history and development of advance-fee scams and scambairer-leagues as folk practices. Next year’s meeting will be hosted by Truman alumnae Meredith Heist Rau and Annie Fuller at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. Talks are underway to bring the convention to Truman in 2014.
