An abandoned fish house on the St. Johns River

An abandoned fish house on the St. Johns River

Date
1985-02-27
Description
Nine color slides. Images of fisher Jackie Bennett at his father Doc Bennett's old fish house. Images of hoop nets, tar pots, a table for fish cleaning, and an old building. 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.

Date

Description
One proof sheet with thirty-six black and white images. Woody Woodward and Al Jones with plastic worms Woodward made as fishing lures. Woodward, with Al Jones, made artificial fishing worms out of plastic for sale in Happy's Bait and Tackle Shop in Inverness. Begun in the 1960s, the idea came to Woody and Al when they noticed that fish only struck worms that floated at the surface by their tails. Therefore, they made a lure to imitate that behavior.

Boatbuilder Marvin Thomas

Date
1984-12
Description
Twenty color slides. Thomas on a shrimp boat and mullet boat he built. Hamilton owned both boats. Images were created as fieldwork for the apprenticeship program.

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, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year until 2003.
