Interview with Myakka City residents Fleta Carlton, Myrtle Mae, and Anna Carlton

Date
1984
Description
Three reel to reels. Fleta Carlton (along with Anna Carlton and Myrtle Mae) discusses life in early 20th Century Myakka. Included are discussions of holiday celebrations, making cane syrup, local traditions, the first bathroom in the area, hunting, food procurement, the arrival of paved roads and telephones, sacred music, churches, domestic arts like butter making and washing clothes, milking cows, and cooking. The Myakka Community Profile Project was conducted between October 1983 and March 1984 through a partnership with the Crowley Museum and Nature Center, and the Florida Folklife Program, funded by the Florida Endowment for the Humanities. The fieldwork and resultant booklet/slideshow, created by museum employee Robert Cottrell and folklorist Pat Waterman, was to profile the lifestyles and values of the Myakka community, located in Southwest Florida in Manatee County. See S 1682 for more information on the project.
