Description
Six proof sheets with 190 black and white images (plus negatives). Images of Luther and Richardson making a coach (wagon) -- a reproduction of a 1903 Studebaker, once common in the Live Oak area. Luther was a German American originally from Pennsylvania, who learned wheelwrighting and coach making from the Amish. At the time, he was a farmer and veterinarian technician living in McAlpin. Richardson was a farmer, lived in Live Oak, and often used mules and wagons. For more information see S 1644, box 10, folder 6. 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 first folklorist Peter Roller, then folklorist Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.
