The Cistern


Thomas Frederick Crane (Jul 12, 1844 – Dec 10, 1927) was an American folklorist, scholar and attorney-at-law.  After graduation from Princeton, he moved to Ithaca. He worked as a lawyer in the community and as a librarian for new founded Cornell University. He is mostly known for Cornell's fight song, "Give My Regards to Davy", and for his collection of Italian Popular Tales, which were published in popular children’s magazines.
