“Suddenly I realized that there was a whole world of three dimensional objects, of artifacts that were just as much part of the academic concern, which had been mine, as the words were. It was a great help because then I began to see that the songs and stories and customs and objects, and ultimately, the art were all part of the same level of society, they were the things that the academic historians had been ignoring, that the academic aestheticians had been ignoring and literary people were ignoring, so that this was a great eye opener to me.” —Louis C. Jones (from ‘The Way I Remember It,’ by Donnarae Gordon and Betsy Mankin))
