Krappe, Alexander Haggerty (1894-1947) | Southern Illinois University Special Collections Research Center

Name: Krappe, Alexander Haggerty (1894-1947)


Historical Note: Alexander Haggerty Krappe (6 July 1894 – 30 November 1947) was a folklorist and author. Along with Francis Peabody Maqoun, he was the first translator of folktales collected by the Brothers Grimm into the English language. A.H Krappe is described as a folklorist, linguist, teacher, translator of scientific and other materials, a Roman[hilogist, a comparative mythologist, a classicist and Scandinavianist. Despite Krappe's contributions and academic writing, his work is largely ignored in the modern Folklore discipline as he staunchly denied the existence of American Folklore.
