American folklorist, academic, in the database professionally as editor of The Complete Tales of Uncle Remus (1955). Depending on developing practice concerning folklore, other work is likely to be added, or Uncle Remus deleted. For instance, Chase's work most widely held in WorldCat libraries is The Jack Tales:

The Jack Tales (1943) – "Contains an American version of the story of Jack and the beanstalk, together with 17 other tales about the adventures of Jack, a poor Appalachian farm boy"
"Sop Doll!" is one of the Jack tales

Some library catalog records attribute some of Chase's work (Uncle Remus material, for instance) to Richard Volney Chase (1914–1962), an American professor of literature.
