1986 Florida Folk Heritage Award Ceremony for Mary McClain

1986 Florida Folk Heritage Award Ceremony for Mary McClain

Date
1986
Description
One proof sheet with 18 black and white images (plus negatives). Award ceremony for blues singer Mary McClain. Known as Diamond Teeth Mary for the jewels she placed in her teeth in the 1940s, Mary was born in West Virginia, and always claimed to be the half sister of fellow blues singer Bessie Smith. In 1918, she moved to Florida's Gulf Coast. During her later years, she lived in Bradenton, Florida. Although McClain was a popular performer in the 1920s and 1930s, she stopped performing the blues for many years. She was rediscovered by the Florida Folklife Program in the 1980s. In 1986, she won the Florida Folk Heritage Award in 1986. She died on 4 April 2000.

Date

Description
Twenty-nine color slides. 14-16: Firestone and Rubio; 17: Firestone, Rubio, and Bulger; 18: Capella Davidson choir; 19-38: dedication ceremony. The Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour, which ran from 10/6-13/1983, was created through an agreement between the Florida Dept. of State and the Mediterranean island of Minorca to celebrate Florida's two hundred year Minorcan heritage. First brought over as workers for a British plantation in the 1770s, most soon escaped the harsh working conditions and settled in St. Augustine. The tour was organized by Secretary of State George Firestone, the Bureau of Florida Folklife (Bulger, Belland, Loomis), Division of Historical Resources (Jean Lee and Paul Weaver) and the Florida Museum of History (Pat Wickman). The tour, with 140 performers and delegates from Minorca, consisted of a series of public performances and emerged out of the smaller program, the Minorcan Heritage Week held in May 1983. The tour traveled from St. Augustine, to the University of Florida, to EPCOT, to Cypress Gardens, then finally to Miami for departure back to Spain. Some records for the tour can be found in S 1578, Box 3, folder 81.
