General Note/Comment

  • One audio cassette. Interview with fishing gear specialist, and former fisher, Hilton Floyd. Interviewed in Pascagoula, Mississippi, by his wife Helen Floyd. He discusses Mayport fishers; making and using cast nets; working for the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries with the US Fish and Wildlife Commission; types of nets; gill nets; sea island cotton; nylon netting; and shrimping. Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
