Description
Eleven color slides. 400-401: At the airport 515-417: Peggy Bulger, Jean Lee, Ormond Loomis, Pat Wickman; 418-422: Tour buses. The Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour, which ran from 10/6-13/1983, was created through an agreement between Florida Dept. of State and Minorca to celebrate Florida's two hundred year Minorcan heritage. First brought over as workers for a British plantation in the 1770s, most soon escaped the harsh working conditions and settled in St. Augustine. The tour, organized by Secretary of State George Firestone, the Bureau of Florida Folklife (Bulger, Belland, Loomis), Division of Historical Resources (Jean Lee and Paul Weaver) and the Florida Museum of History (Pat Wickman). The tour, with 140 performers and delegates from Minorca, consisted of a series of public performances and emerged out of the smaller program, the Minorcan Heritage Week held in May 1983. The tour traveled from St. Augustine, to the University of Florida, to EPCOT, to Cypress Gardens, then finally to Miami for departure back to Spain. Some records for the tour can be found in S 1578, Box 3, folder 81.

Recording of the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Review Committee of the Florida Folklife Council for 1993-1994

Date
1993-09-24
Description
Four audio cassettes. The meeting was held between 1pm and 5pm at the Visual Arts Building Conference Room (University of Central Florida) to decide upon which master-apprentice applicants would receive funding for 1993-1994. Folklorist Stone submitted twenty-five applications to the committee, which consisted of Jumper, Hansen, Tucker (non-voting member), Bucuvalas, Congdon, Foreman, Rodriguez, and Waterman. Bureau chief Loomis also attended. After ranking each application, the committee recommended the following teams: palmetto basket maker Marian Bowers & Martha Jones; gigante maker Isaac Duenas & David Duenas/Ramon Zepeda; old-time fiddler Willie Jones & Trenda Slaughter; African acrobatics Augustine and Felix Omdeben & Akila Baki/Moses Campbell; Sacred Steel guitarist Aubrey Ghent & Elton Noble; white oak basket maker Alfonso Jennings & Michael Steen; and pysanki artist Ola Kryway & Mary Martin. They also recommended pianist Alex McBride & Teddy Williams, but it was cow whip maker George Mills & J. Taylor Marcus who were ultimately funded. For more information on the meeting, S 1644, box 11, folder 20. 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. The program was continued each year through 2004.
