Interview with Myakka City postmistress Marilyn Roberts Coker

Interview with Myakka City postmistress Marilyn Roberts Coker

One reel to reel. Coker discusses growing up in Myakka, including piano lessons, going to school, the old-timers, and the birth of her children there. She also talks about the local post office, which was a social center, as well as her job with the Federal postal service. The Myakka Community Profile Project was conducted between October 1983 and March 1984 through a partnership with the Crowley Museum and Nature Center, and the Florida Folklife Program, funded by the Florida Endowment for the Humanities. The fieldwork and resultant booklet/slideshow, created by museum employee Robert Cottrell and folklorist Pat Waterman, was to profile the lifestyles and values of the Myakka community, located in Southwest Florida in Manatee County. See S 1682 for more information on the project.
