Interview with fisher Albert Gufford

Date
1986-08-08
Description
Two audio cassettes. Interview with retired fisher and charter boat captain Gufford in his home in Mayport. He discusses fishing; making fishing tackle (lead fishing weights); boating; tourism; sports fishers; rum running during Prohibition; drug smuggling; and local history. Throughout the recording, a loud electric fan can be heard blowing. 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.
