Description
Nine color slides. Images of Captain Eddie Baker at the Mayport docks. The boat behind him is the Miss Alice, named for his wife. He once captained that boat before health issues retired him. At the time, he was the oldest fisher in Mayport. Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project may be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.

Description
Seventy-seven color slides. Born in Saginaw, Michigan, Hanson grew up in Rockport, Massachusetts, where he learned to tie fly fish lines from his grandfather.

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.
