Ralph Page (1903-1985) attended Dartmouth College and became one of the leading dance callers of his time, an authority on New England Country Dancing, and an important figure in the history of traditional dance in America (see Guide to the Ralph Page Manuscript Collection at University of New Hampshire). According to www.squaredancehistory.org, Page single-handedly published 165 mimeographed issues of his Northern Junket magazine (1949-1984), which contained folk songs and recipes as well as directions and tunes for squares and contras.
