She discusses growing up in North Carolina; moving to Florida in the 1930s; working at a local Jacksonville restaurant; World War II; her father-in-law; a local Duval County judge; her husband's death at sea in 1956; Mayport in 1940s and 1950s; commercial fishing; pogy fishing (Menhaden); cooking mullet; stories of local residents; drug running in Mayport; and local legends. Recorded in her home in Neptune Beach. 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. 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.
