General Note/Comment

  • One reel to reel recording. Starting in 1952, the Stephen Foster Memorial and the Florida Federation of Music Clubs sponsored a competition aimed at young female vocalists. The winner was dubbed that year's "Jeanie With the Light Brown Hair." A ball was also held in association with the contest. Starting in 1954, winners were awarded musical scholarships, and a spot on the Florida Folk Festival program.
