Date
1983-10-06
Description
Seventeen color slides. 77-78: Images of the ceremony; 79-86: Park employee with Paul Wagner and Loomis; 87-88: Wagner and Father Coll; 89: Bulger; 90: Belland; 91-93: Reception with Jean Lee. The Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour, which ran from 10/6-13/1983, was created through an agreement between the 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 was 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.

Oyster shuckers at D. W. Wilson Seafood Company

Date
1986-11-13
Description
Four contact sheets with 139 black and white images; plus negatives and logs. To shuck an oyster means to remove the meat of the oyster from its shell. This was often done before the product was shipped to seafood dealers and restaurants. Sheets in envelope 31 feature images of folklorists Hepburn, Taylor, and Loomis talking with and taking slides of fish house workers. Collector Hepburn was from Dept. of Community Affairs, and joined the project after it began. 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.
