Interview with fisher A.P. Oliver

Date
1985-02-16
Description
Two audio cassettes. Interview with former fisher and fish house owner Oliver. Born in Oklahoma, he moved to Florida in 1910. He discusses family history; raising hogs; hunting; bass fishing; working as a fish guide since the 1930s; sports fishing; feuds between sports and commercial fishers; Florida weather; bait; and fishing tackle. 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.

Interview with oyster fisher Mike Hilchey

Date
1985-08-28
Description
One audio cassette. Discusses Hilchey's family involvement in oyster fishing (going back to his great-grandfather); boat making; oyster regulation; learning oystering; descriptions of local oyster areas such as Simpson's Creek; vernacular names for oysters; names of oyster beds; oyster seasons; local oyster men; kinship ties in the business; his customers; cooking and serving oysters; and change in the business. 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, and 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.

The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
