Summary/Abstract: My aim was to reconstruct our meetings with Martin as rigorously and honestly as I can, but I had to admit that in the field of research history such attempts are doomed to failure. That is why I cannot but take the responsibility for all the omissions and forgotten details. They are inevitable when we recollect past events, especially if they happened 50 years ago. I met Martin first in 1963, and till 1978 on several occasions. Our meetings happened in the period of time when Romanian ethnochoreology reached adulthood. So my memories about Martin are closely intertwined with my memories about the establishment of the theoretical and methodological framework of our folk dance research in the Institute of Folklore and Ethnography in Bucharest.
