El Maximo Ranch

Date
1984-09
Description
Twenty color slides. Images of El Maximo Ranch (owned by Matt Maxcy), including horses, buildings, gates, signs, and workers. Also examples of marks and brands, and of rancher Thompson. For interviews with Thompson on ranch folklife, see S 1577, C83-139 and C84-7. Images created as fieldwork for the apprenticeship program. 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, who later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year until 2003.
