"Margaret Bradford Boni, who selected and edited the songs in this book, was born in Birmingham, Alabama, but lived in Florida from the age of one. After being graduated from Florida State College, she studied music in Germany and in the Institute of Musical Art (now the Juilliard School of Music). A recognized authority on folk songs, Mrs. Boni has taught and conducted at the City and Country School, the Brearley School (both in New York City), and in the Pennsylvania public schools. She has also taught recorder courses in New York University's Department of General Education. She is the editor of the Fireside Books of Folk Songs, Love Songs, and Favorite American Songs, and co-author of the How To Play the Recorder books."
