Interview with English professor Guy Miles

Interview with English professor Guy Miles

Date
1988-09-16
Description
One audio cassette. Guy Miles was a professor of English at the University of Florida from 1957 to 1972 and was an authority on southern folklife. He was born in Dresden, Tennessee in 1908 and served in the Air Force during World War II. In 1959, he and his wife Faye bought a farm in Evinston, a small community about fifteen miles south of Gainesville, near Cross Creek. In 1967, one of their neighbors in Evinston, an elderly African American woman named Eliza Washington, asked Guy to set down what she wanted the community to know about her when she died. Guy recorded her and later used her words at her funeral service. Subsequently, Guy and several of his students started recording the "talk" of local people, launching a project that was to last twenty years and generate over 700 reel-to-reel tapes. Miles was interested in recording the folklife of people through their own telling of their experiences, in the way people really said it. He recorded several main "talkers" from 1967 to 1987, providing a wealth of information on the country life of the area past and present, and relating the values, beliefs, and world view of the community through individual expression. In the interview, Miles talks about his research, his audio recordings collection, fieldwork techniques, and his life history. Miles passed away in November of 1988. The Guy Miles Collection (S 1709) consists of 727 reel to reel recordings of Miles' interviews with local residents. They have also been copied on to CDs as well as .wav files, available for public use in the Florida State Archives research room.

Joel Frank interview for the Seminole Video Project

Joel Frank interview for the Seminole Video Project

Date
1984-03-29
Description
One reel to reel. Joel Frank is a Seminole educator. He discusses the present (c. 1984) state of Seminole education, as well as the history of reservation education; recruiting educated Seminoles for employment; alternative education programs; goals of reservation education; and cultural education. The Seminole Video Project was a joint project between the Florida Folklife Program and WFSU-TV. Completed in Spring 1984, and financed by a Florida Endowment for the Humanities grant with the support of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, the project culminated in a thirty-minute documentary entitled "Four Corners of the Earth" which profiled Ethel Santiago, a Seminole craftswoman and Tribal representative. The program addressed such issues as cultural retention within contemporary society; the role of women in Seminole society; traditional Seminole foods, arts, and medicine; and the changing emphasis on clan affiliations. The project covered Seminoles on the Big Cypress and Hollywood Reservations and at Immokalee, Florida. Raw video footage, along with the finished product, can be found in S 1615, V84-16 through V-84-24. Images from the project can be found in S 1577, v. 23, slides S83-2994 - S83-3020.

Side 2 (C82-1): Safa discusses cultural assimilation amongst Caribbean immigrants in the U.S.; rites of passage and celebrations used to reaffirm group identity; "Quinces;" the outlawing of Santeria and other religions in Cuba after the revolution; different US immigrant groups' identification with their Caribbean heritages, like in New York and Miami. Side 1 (C82-2): Safa compares Miami's cultural assimilation when compared with countries like China and India; Cuban immigrants in Florida who immigrated to the US before the 1960s, during Battista's governance; studies on the Mariel boatlift; and Cuban Mafia groups who moved to Florida after Castro's takeover and their role in Florida's exile anti-Castro organizations.
