Description
Two audio cassettes. Interview with long-time St. Johns River resident McRae. Originally contacted as having possible information on commercial fishing in Mayport (which she did not), she discussed life upon the St. Johns River; river fishing and boating; gardening; and local history. Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. Also available on reel to reel (reels 6-7). The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
