Sylvia Grider
Sylvia Grider's accompanying essay explains the origin and folkloric tradition of roadside memorials. Sylvia Ann Grider, emeritus professor of anthropology at Texas A&M University, was asked to be Director of the Bonfire Memorabilia Project after the fatal collapse of the student-built Aggie Bonfire in 1999. That work led to her current research on roadside crosses.

Sylvia Grider, a folklorist and anthropologist at Texas A&M University who has studied the history of the memorials, said their rising popularity in the United States was part of a growing acceptance of public mourning.
"Something happened in American culture when the Vietnam Wall went up and there was an outpouring of offerings in front of it that no one was expecting," Ms. Grider said.
