John and Ruby Lomax's Southern States Recording Trip Recordings (1939: Raiford and Newberry, Fla.)

Date
1939-06-01
Description
One reel to reel. (Copied onto audio cassette C90-35/36 in S 1576). These recordings were created during John and Ruby Lomax's 1939 recording trip through the South. Touring eleven states, the husband and wife team gathered material for the Library of Congress's Archive of the American Folk Song (today the Archive of Folk Culture in the American Folklife Center). They were not working for the WPA at the time, as is sometimes thought; but they visited two of the same sites the recorded at during their 1936-1937 WPA trip to Florida. In these recordings the Lomaxes visited the Florida State Prison at Raiford in Union County (June 2-5); and Mrs. Griffin's home in Newberry (June 1). They recorded a total of 63 songs on acetate discs (the entire trip netted a full 267 discs, with over 600 titles). See the online exhibit for more about that 1939 expedition at http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/lohtml/lohome.html (Also see other the reels of the 1939 trip: T86-242/243/223). In S 1579, box 3, there are copies of the original LOC indexes. In 1986, the FFP staff made copies of many of these recordings onto reel to reels for inclusion to the Florida Folklife Archive. The originals are still housed with the Library of Congress.

Public workshop on Florida Folk Festival policy (Miami)

Date
1982-10-31
Description
Three audio cassettes. Recording of a public meeting held at the Florida International University to discuss the new Florida Folk Festival policies. In April 1982, the Department of State (DOS) and its Florida Folklife Program (FFP) sent out notice that the policies were changing. The result was a highly charged meeting between the FFP, the Florida Folklife Council, and the many folk artists. (See C83-90 and C83-91 in S 1576, box 10.) That fall, once the policy was completed, the FFP and the DOS offered several public meetings across the state. Includes discussion of the policy as well as input from various attendees as to the future of the festival. In addition to Miami, meetings were held in Tampa and White Springs.
