Fisher Donald Vickers being interviewed on his property
- Seventeen color slides. Vickers was a long-time catfisher, who also gigged frogs to help earn more money for his family. Two images of a gate on his property with a Keep Closed sign. In the same box, folder 10, there is a transcript of the interview, but there is no tape. In 1992, the Palm Beach Community College contracted the Florida Folklife Program to conduct ten days of fieldwork in March 1992 around Lake Okeechobee for a Lakefront Legacy Festival later that year (16 May 1992). Headed up by FFP folklorist Debbie Fant, and assisted by Robert Stone and Robert Shanafelt, the fieldwork involved 26 informants, slides, print images and recorded interviews. In the end, the FFP recommended seven people for festival participation.
