Olive Clare Lodge (OL) (1884-1953) was the niece of the physicist, Sir Oliver Lodge. Shortly after the First World War she worked in Serbia and Poland as an aid worker, working in Serbia for the British Food Commission. In the interwar period OL was able to travel widely in Serbia [then part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes] and Bulgaria as a result of holding research fellowships from SSEES and Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. During the Second World War OL gave many lectures on Yugoslavia, raising funds for the Yugoslav Relief Society of which she was a committee member and after the war in 1952 she revisited the country. OL was the author of a number of publications on the life and customs of Bulgarian and Yugoslavian people particularly folklore rituals and also of several demographic studies of the areas.
