Date
1985-01-09
Description
One audio cassette. Rowe was a quilter and a former juke (jook) joint cook. In this interview, she discusses both pursuits, as well as her family history and her time with the local Home Demonstration Clubs. For images of Rowe, see S 1577, v. 28, slides 2012-2043. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
