Interview with community volunteer Mary Ware

Date
1988-01-23
Description
One audio cassette. Ware was a very active community volunteer, working primarily with children making 'scrap crafts' (her term for the crafts made from discarded items such as bottles.) She was a church organist for 62 years, and tuaght piano lessons. In the interview, she discusses her volunteer work; local history; types of crafts she made; teaching children; and her ideas on growing old. The Southwest Florida Folk Arts Project was conducted under the direction of Barbara Beauchamp in two phases: 12 November 1987 through 31 January 1988 by Debbie Fant; and in February 1988 by Nancy Nusz. Using a 35mm camera and a Sony tape recorder, and funded through a NEA grant, the two fieldworkers spoke with over fifty informants in Manatee, Sarasota, Lee, Collier, and Charlotte counties, resulting in 20 participants chosen for a special SW Florida folklife area at the 36th Annual Florida Folk Festival.
