General Note/Comment

  • Two reel to reels. Interview with Seymour. The boatbuilder discusses his career as a commercial fisher (shrimper); working on a Louisiana oil rig; boatbuilding; types of fishing boats; local boat builders; oyster skiffs; gill net boats; and of learning his craft. Duplicate copy of the interview can be found on audio cassette in S 1592, box 8, tapes 11-12; also at the Library of Congress' American Folk Center archive (AFS 26,804A13-57, B). 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. 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.
