First Lucreaty Clark interview for the Lucreaty Clark Project

First Lucreaty Clark interview for the Lucreaty Clark Project

Date
1979-10-31
Description
Six reel to reels. Lucreaty Clark was a white oak basket maker, a tradition that stretched back in her family to antebellum times. In 1979, no one else was making split white oak baskets, and she presumed the tradition would die with her. (In the mid-1980s, she trained her grandson Alphonso Jennings to make white oak baskets.) T79-23: Topics included plantation work, cooking, her first marriage, her children, Brer Rabbit tales, games, and smoking beef. T79-25: Clark discusses how she chooses the white oak to make her baskets, how she splits the wood, her tools, selling the baskets, sues of the baskets, and how her parents taught her the skill. T79-26: Clark talks about raising hogs, Christmas baskets, and various basket types. T79-27: Clark talks about giving birth, weather predictions, raising her kids, snakes in the area, and her grandchildren. T79-28: Recording of Clark making a basket while she narrates throughout the process. Afterwards, she talks about -- and tells -- stories from her childhood, including ghost stories, Brer rabbit tales, and Little Red Riding Hood. T79-29: She discusses marriage and kids, midwives, losing her last child during childbirth, morning sickness, medicinal cures for childbirth pains, birthmarks, pregnancy superstitions, and how to finish a basket.

WPA field recordings in Cross City and Ybor City (August 1939 recording expedition)

WPA field recordings in Cross City and Ybor City (August 1939 recording expedition)

Date
1939-08-19
Description
One reel to reel. These recordings were created by Florida folklorist Kennedy and photographer Cook in August 1939. They created a total of sixteen 12-inch acetate records that month. On this recording, men from the Aycock and Lindsey turpentine camp in Cross City perform two songs, and tell a ghost story (19 August). The remainder of the reel was recorded at the Andux household on 24 August, during a birthday party. The family sang songs, and told stories. For more detailed information on the recordings, see S 1579, box 3, for copies of the original LOC indexes. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) – after 1939, the Works Projects Administration – was a work-relief program created in 1935 by the Roosevelt Administration that employed over 8.5 million people between 1935 and 1943. One of its programs was the Federal Writers Project (FWP), which included the Folklore Section. This section conducted fieldwork, recording songs, traditions, and stories across the nation. Originally created to gather material for the American Guide Series, but later emphasis was placed upon fieldwork for preservation of folk traditions for future use. In Florida, the FWP was based out of Jacksonville, and directed by historian Carita Doggett Corse. Folklorist Stetson Kennedy directed the Florida Folklife section. Seven recording expeditions were conducted in Florida. Two were conducted between 1935 and 1937, before the creation of the Florida Folklore Section: one by Alan Lomax and Zora Neale Hurston, and the other by John and Ruby Lomax. After 1939, five more were conducted by Florida’s FWP staff: Kennedy, Hurston, Robert Cook, Alton Morris, Corse, Robert Cornwell, John Filareton, and Herbert Halpert (of the Joint Committee on Folk Art’s Southern Recording Expedition.) Recording equipment was loaned to Florida’s WPA program by the Library of Congress’ Archive of the American Folk Song (later the American Folk Center). The field recordings were made on acetate disks, usually recorded at 78 rpm (although occasionally at 33 rpm). Because these disks were shipped from Washington DC to Florida, then to the recording site, and then back to Washington, these disks often were not of the highest sonic quality. Several had surface scratches and many had various recording speeds. 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.
