Nineteen color slides. Workers unloading and steaming stone crabs. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000.

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 was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
