Ada Mickler and her palmetto hats

Date
1988-10
Description
Twenty color slides. Images created as fieldwork for the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program. 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, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.

Blues musician Buck Thompson playing on his porch/The Trivettes playing at Fred Perry's house

Date
1985-02
Description
One proof sheet, with 32 black and whites images (plus negatives). Twenty-six images of fifty-year old blues guitarist Buck Thompson playing tunes that he learned from the radio on his front porch. A lifelong migrant farmer, he played the juke circuit in the 1950s. A sound recording of the performance can be found in S 1714, box 6 reels 23 and 24. Also includes six images of the Trivette family playing bluegrass in Fred Perry's home in St. Augustine. Players consisted of Frank Trivette Sr.(banjo, fiddle) Frank Trivette Jr. (guitar), Doug Trivette (guitar), Buddy Beck (mandolin) and Carlos Brackett (bass). 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.

Seven color slides. The Cathedral Basilica is the nation's oldest parish (dating back to 1565). The present cathedral was built in 1797 out of native coquina stone. Henry Flagler later donated the cathedral's steeple.
