Interview with oyster shuckers Virginia Duggar and Nanette Lolley

Two audio cassettes. Interview with oyster shuckers Duggar and Lolley. They discuss family history; George Kirvin (Duggar's first boss); local oysters; job conditions; shucking; how they learned the craft; Loys Cain; tools for shucking; and fishing superstitions. 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. Also available on reel to reel (reels 6-7). 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.
