Date
1993-01
Description
Four proof sheets with 116 black and white images (plus negatives). Originally born in Georgia, Dooley was a long-time Florida fisher and net maker. Reis, a Portuguese American fisher, was funded to learn to make and repair cast nets. He had to make one 8 foot and one 10 foot net. For more images of the two, see S 1640, box 16, folder 6. For more information, see S 1644, box 11, folder 7. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller, and then Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.
