Twenty-five color slides. Demonstrating lye soap making at Mami Agnes Elementary School. Slides 4019-4028 are in volume 38.

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.
