General Note/Comment

  • One audio cassette. Douberly learned net making from his father, who worked with Billy Burbank. Douberly was the only full time netmaker in Mayport at the time. He discusses learning net making; various types of nets: scallop and shrimp trawls, clam bags, cast nets, hoop nets, and jib nets; net parts; river fishing; repairing nets; a typical work day; netmaking tools; hanging nets; and the netmaking process. For images of Dourberly, see S 1577, v. 56. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
