Interview with Carmen Salvatore

Date
1992-03-07
Description
Three cassette tapes. Salvatore was considered a pioneer in Belle Glade, and was interviewed by the FFP for local history. Born in Italy on 22 April 1896, he was a World War I vet, and a founder of Pahokee. In the interview he discusses moving to Florida in 1914, marriage, world War I, Pahokee; work as a fisher; the arrival of roads in 1925; local culture; ethnic conflicts in Florida and New York; farming; work on the local school board in the 1930s; Everglades drainage; Belle Glade history; hunting; bootlegging; the 1928 hurricane; Internal Improvement Board; and early South Florida residents. 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.

Interview with fisher Angelo Fichera

Date
1986-11-05
Description
Two reel to reels (also copied onto audio cassette). Interview with fisher Angelo Fichera, whose family came from Sicily. He fished for oysters, clams, shrimps, and sturgeon. He discusses Italian and Greek communities in Apalachicola; his fisher father; oystering; fishing boats; mullet and sturgeon fishing; using nets; local businesses; and local fishers. Also a copy can be found in the Library of Congress' American Folk Archive (AFS 26,808). 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. Also available on reel to reel (reels 6-7). 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.
