Wow. I am in awe. Thank you.
Here’s a bit more from the Portuguese Wikipedia:
I notice that I misspelled it as Gail rather than Gale, and that the spelling on the book is Gale. So my mind read it as a woman’s name and rewrote the spelling.
From the obituary:
Elon Gale Huntington (New Iorque, 4 of June of 1901 – 26 of September of 1993) was a etnógrafa of the United States of America that developed research work on folclóricas traditions of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Southeast of New England .
So Gale was 76 when this book was published.
