Two audio cassettes. Wagner discusses his Georgia origins; his education at UNF; learning instrument making from his father as a child; repairing instruments; playing the cello and various other stringed instruments; bass, fiddle, banjo, guitar; knife making; toy making; making guitars, banjoes, violins, and dulcimers; various inlays; Stradivarius and his techniques; patterns; and prices charged. Images of Wagner can be found in S 1577, v. 37. 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, and 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.
