Happy Cole Driggers old family photographs of 1920s shad fishing

Date
1920
Description
One proof sheet, with 21 images (plus negatives). Images copied from the collection of family photographs of the Happy Driggers. The images are of shad fishers of the 1920s. For further description, see tape 57 in S 1714, box 4. 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.
