After coming to North Carolina in 1924 as a graduate student in sociology, Guy Benton Johnson intended to study social sciences, but under the advisement of Howard Odum, Johnson spent his first year in graduate school compiling and editing manuscripts of black folk song. The result was THE NEGRO AND HIS SONGS in 1925 and later THE NEGRO WORKADAY SONGS and JOHN HENRY: TRACKING DOWN THE NEGRO LEGEND.
