Folklore Friday from ANCHR

Every Friday the Association for Northern California Historical Research — ANCHR — posts an audio clip on Facebook from Dr. Hector Lee on northern California folklore and history. This one is about William B. Ide, participant in the Bear Flag Revolt and first president of the Republic of California.

If you enjoy this clip, and can’t wait for more, subscribe to the ANCHR Facebook page and get another Folklore Friday post every Friday.

He was a nationally known authority on the folklore of the American West and his collections of tales appeared not only in books, but on radio and television as well. The clips presented on the ANCHR Facebook page come from the files of CSUChico Meriam Library Special Collections, who have given permission to share them.
