General Note/Comment

  • Eight audio cassette recordings. Storytellers spoke between 10am and 2pm at the storytelling stage. The coordinator was Peggy Smith. Festival director (since 1954) Thelma Boltin passed away in late 1992. A well-known storyteller, the 1993 Storytelling workshops were dedicated to her, and many of the storytellers talked about her. Drury was from Boone, NC. Jumper lived at the Hollywood Seminole Indian Reservation. Smith was from Jacksonville. Spitzer and Louis resided in Miami. Koontz, Skipper, and Harshbarger lived in Tallahassee. Case lived in Gainesville. Johnson was a 4-year old volunteer from the audience.
