Interview with net maker Martin Cooper

Date
1984-07-24
Description
Fifteen color slides. For images of Cooper, see S 1577, v. 37. Cooper, also a fisher, discusses local (Mayport) Swedish and Portuguese fishers; starting out as a fisher in the 1950s; his work as a fisher and as a security guard at Mayport naval base; entering the net business; river shrimping; various seafood licenses; the changing nature of shrimp boats and the trade; the process of making a net; catching mullet; net styles; time involved in netmaking; materials for making nets; various types of nets; and repairing nets. 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, 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.
