Antti A. Aarne
|Died||February 2, 1925 (aged 57)|
|Known for||Aarne-Thompson classification system|
Antti was a student of Kaarle Krohn, the son of the folklorist Julius Krohn. He further developed their historic-geographic method of comparative folkloristics, and developed the initial version of what became the Aarne–Thompson classification system of classifying folktales, first published in 1910 and extended by Stith Thompson first in 1927 and again in 1961.
