Description
One audio cassette. Thompson, one-time foreman for the El Maximo Ranch (starting in 1938), discusses cattle ranching; disease control measures such as cattle dipping (for tick fever and screwworm); cattle raising; work conditions; race and gender in ranching; typical day on a ranch; food and housing on ranches; branding and marking; pasture improvements; rodeos; and use of the term cowboys. For another interview, see S 1576, C83-139. For images, see S 1577, v. 32. Interview conducted as fieldwork for the 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, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
