Recording of the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Review Committee of the Florida Folklife Council for 1992-1993

Recording of the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Review Committee of the Florida Folklife Council for 1992-1993

Date
1992-09-26
Description
Five audio cassettes. The meeting was held to decide upon which master-apprentice applicants would receive funding for 1992-1993. Folklorist Stone submitted thirteen applications to the committee, which consisted of Chairetakis, Hansen, Monahan (non-voting member), and Waterman. Bureau chief Loomis also attended. After ranking each application, the committee recommended the following teams: cast net maker Max Dooley & Reginald Reis; leather carver Robert Dellis & Kitt Maynard; Greek bouzouki player Spiridon Skordilis & Antonis Kallis; Andean pan pipe player Aldolpho Rodriguez & Howard Sukay; and Nicaraguan pinata maker Chony Gutierrez & Rosa Marie Fuentes. However, it was decided at the 30 September Florida Folklife Council meeting that only two teams (Dooley/Reis and Dellis/Maynard) receive funding because of financial difficulties. The NEA did not fund the 1992-1993 program because it felt the selection process in previous years did not include enough folklorist input. This year, there was also a professional staff review meeting that was not recorded, held on 22 September 1992. A recording of the 30 September Council meeting can be found in S 1717, box 4; and a copy of the minutes in box 1. For more information on the review meeting, see S 1644, box 11, folder 2.
