Date

Description
Four proof sheets with 116 black and white images (plus negatives). Originally born in Georgia, Dooley was a long-time Florida fisher and net maker. Reis, a Portuguese American fisher, was funded to learn to make and repair cast nets. He had to make one 8 foot and one 10 foot net. For more images of the two, see S 1640, box 16, folder 6. For more information, see S 1644, box 11, folder 7. 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, and then Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.

Eleven color slides. Hartig came to Florida with his family in 1957. Fishes from a 26' boat with nets and rod and reels. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. 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. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.
