Interview with oyster fisher Mike Hilchey

Interview with oyster fisher Mike Hilchey

One audio cassette. Discusses Hilchey's family involvement in oyster fishing (going back to his great-grandfather); boat making; oyster regulation; learning oystering; descriptions of local oyster areas such as Simpson's Creek; vernacular names for oysters; names of oyster beds; oyster seasons; local oyster men; kinship ties in the business; his customers; cooking and serving oysters; and change in the business. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
