Interview with wood worker John Cross

Interview with wood worker John Cross

Date
1984-12-04
Description
One audio cassette. Cross, a former railroader and sea merchant, discusses Bryceville, Florida; his father, a machinist, millwright, and Baldwin Chief of Police; work as a cattle rancher; hog hunting; working for the railroads; carpentry; traditional woodworking tools: drawing knife, planes, shaving horse, spoke shave; whip maker, and Curly Dekle. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. 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. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
