Folk-Lore/Volume 29/Obituary/Clement Arthur Miles


Mr. Miles, who died on 2nd February, 1918, was a member of the Folk-Lore Society. He had been for many years on Mr. T. Fisher Unwin’s literary staff, and had recently been working for the Friends’ War Victims’ Relief Committee. He was author of an important work: Christmas: in Ritual and Tradition. He possessed a wide knowledge of European languages, translated Sabatier’s Modernism and other works from the French, and was co-translator from the Italian of Gayda’s Modern Austria: Her Racial and Social Problems. His early death at the age of 37 frustrates the promise of a distinguished career.
