Workers at El Maximo Rancho

Date
1984-03
Description
Two proof sheets with 52 black and white images (plus negatives). Images include Thompson and McQuaig; Wilder making saddles; and Lee making cow whips. Created as fieldwork for both the apprenticeship program and the Florida Folk Festival. 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 was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year until 2003.
