Another great limerick scholar

Victor Bobb <vbobb@...>

One of the great collectors of limericks was Ray Allen Billington, an
exceptionally respectable and prominent historian, and author of
*Westward Migration*, which is in my judgment the best account of
expansion across North America ever written. I don't know whether
Billington's collections of limericks are in print, but they'd be worth
pursuing if they are. (And the *Westward Migration* book rewards
reading, too, even though it's naked of limericks.)
