By Tim Lloyd (American Folklore Society) — 

An Ohio folklorist and Indiana University graduate, Hilda Eggleston Webb passed away February 15, 2013, at her home in Mariemont, Ohio. Hilda May earned degrees in chemistry and folklore. She wrote "Water witching and other folk talents in the neighborhood of Bloomington, Indiana," in 1964, and "Cincinnati newspapers as a source of folklore themes," in 1975. She never lost an interest in folk tales, art, cultures, and customs. Later in life, she obtained a master's degree in social work, and also became an art therapist.
