Description
143 color slides. Images of commercial fisherman Noles trapping, transporting, and cleaning catfish for sale at market. The boat he used was built by Myron Warr. A few slides are duplicates. For an interview with Noles, see S 1714, Box 3, tapes 30-32. In winter 1985, the Bureau joined 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.

Description
Twelve color slides. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. 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, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.

Description
117 color slides. Images of fisher Jackie Bennett hoop netting in the St. Johns River, then sorting, weighing, and hauling his catch for market. A hoop net is a fish trap made of several wooden or metal hoops of decreasing diameter joined by cotton netting that was made for river use. It was tied to an underwater mooring, then allowed to sit for several days before they were raised. These images are of Bennett raising the nets after several days. The boat was built by Myron Warr.
