Date

Description
One audio cassette. NKwanda Jah is the interviewer. Howell gives a brief family background. He explains the turpentine business, homesteading, and other industries in North Florida. He gives some background on attending school in Port St. Joe, Fla. and working for the St. Joe Paper Company for forty-two years. He discusses his collection of railroad paraphernalia and how he acquired an interest in railway work because of his father, a news butch on the Apalachicola Northern Railroad. He explains that he never referred to railroad section workers as "gandy dancers," but instead as "section gangs." He shares his perception of race relations among railway workers, explaining that section foremen were usually white and the workers were African American. The tape cuts outs momentarily at 14:50. Howell discusses labor when he first entered the work force, including his work in the Coast Guard. He discusses his work photographing railroads.

Date
1987-04-28
Description
Seventeen color slides. Images of Sanchez talking one on one with students. Sanchez oversees cane burning and cutting, as well as recruiting workers for a local sugar grower. His father was rancher in Cuba, who left as political exiles in the 1960s. 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.
