Description
Nineteen color slides. Images of an unidentified male cast-fishing with a cast net in the Ribault River. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.

Date
1985-02-07
Description
151 color slides. Images of commercial fishers Sheffield and the Schmidt family catching, hauling, and cleaning shad (and some flounder). They would fish the St. Johns River and then take their catches back to the fishhouse for processing. The Schmidts were from Illinois originally, and Sheiffield was a native of Floridia. For an interview with the Schmidts, see S 1714, Box 3, tapes 28-29; for Sheffield, see tape 27.. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted 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 much 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.

Max Dooley and apprentice Reginald Reese making cast nets

Date
1993-01
Description
97 color slides. Originally born in Georgia, Dooley was a long-time Florida fisher and net maker. Reis, a Portuguese American fisher, was funded to learn to make and repair cast nets. He had to make one 8 foot and one 10 foot net. For more images of the two, see S 1640, box 16, folder 6. For more information, see S 1644, box 11, folder 7. 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 folklorist Peter Roller, and then Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.
