Boatbuilder Squeaky Mullis with his boats

Date
1985-01-16
Description
Six color slides. Mullis in his workshop with boats he was building. Mullis was a self-taught boatbuilder who learned the craft by imitating Myron Warr's boats. He uses both wood and fiberglass for his boats. His boat bulding business was called Hulls by Mullis. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
