I'm Margaret "Peggy" Yocom, a folklorist in the Department of English at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia, where I started teaching in 1977, after graduate work at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

Here, you'll find information about my work at GMU, my fieldwork in the state of Maine, and more.
