Description

Charley Thomas edited the early issues of American Squares. The April 1952 issue (included) marks the transition to Rickey Holden as editor. Later issues were edited or overseen by Rod LaFarge and Frank Kaltman and then Arvid Olson.

A major effort is currently (2013) underway-- supported in part by the Square Dance History Project and the Library of Traditional Music and Dance at the University of New Hampshire--to digitize and make available online a complete set of American Squares and its successor publications, New American Squares and American Squaredance. UNH scanned the earliest copies, and Gardner Patton is scanning the others.

Copies currently available can be found here.
