Fern Farm

Date
1985-03-01
Description
Twenty color slides. Images of a typical fern farm owned by Bonnie Jones, located in an area known as the fern belt. The ferns are under plastic wrap to protect them from freezing. Many of the plants are brown from the recent January freeze. Ferns were often used by Mexican Americans as food additives, called herba. In winter 1985, the Bureau joined 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.

Hungarian embroiderer Margaret Horvath and apprentice Sylvia Daniels

Date
Description
Three proof sheets with 92 black and white images. Both Daniels and Horvath were born in Budapest, Hungary. Hungarian embroidery dates back for centuries, with four major regions, each with their own distinctive patterns and motfis. Daniels worked as an apprentice to Horvath in 1990-1991. This was Horvath's second time as a master artist(she also participated in 1985). For information on them, see S 1644, box 8, folder 6. 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.
