Date
1985-02-22
Description
Twelve color slides. Images of deer hunters and their families at a hunting club preparing deer meat (venison) for dinner. In winter 1985, the Bureau joined with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting a great deal of river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the "St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area" at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.

El Maximo Ranch

Date
1984-09
Description
Twenty color slides. Images of El Maximo Ranch (owned by Matt Maxcy), including horses, buildings, gates, signs, and workers. Also examples of marks and brands, and of rancher Thompson. For interviews with Thompson on ranch folklife, see S 1577, C83-139 and C84-7. Images created as fieldwork for the apprenticeship program. 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, who later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year until 2003.
