Former Assistant Director of the Manx Museum, Eric R. Cregeen (1921–83) was one of UK’s prime movers in recording oral history. He was rigorously trained by the Irish Folklore Commission in the 1940s, while recording for the Manx Folk Life Survey. He later moved to Scotland where he recorded crofters and fishermen in the West Highlands and Islands.
