Jervis McEntee Diaries and Letters: Diary, Volume II, 1874 November 26-1878 December 8

Have you ever wanted to explore the tiny day-to-day details of an artist's life 150 years ago? Then join the Archives of American Art as we transcribe the Jervis McEntee diaries and letters! Hudson River School painter Jervis McEntee (1828-1891) was one of the leading New York artists during the late 19th century and an incredibly prolific diarist. In his almost 4,500 diary entries in 1872-1890, McEntee records his thoughts, observations, activities, encounters, and anxieties. He paints a vivid picture of an artist's daily life with his words, and he provides a window on the New York art scene during and after the Gilded Age.

Myriam Nyang, conducted by Pearl Bowser, Side 1

Please view the instructions for transcribing audio collections before beginning. Pearl Bowser (b. 1931) is a renowned African American film scholar, filmmaker, author, and film/conference programmer. She is widely recognized as an expert on the works of Oscar Micheaux, who is considered the first major African American filmmaker. Working as a researcher from the 1960s through the early 2000s, Bowser travelled the world interviewing actors, actresses, filmmakers, and scholars, including Lorenzo Tucker, Gordon Parks, Arthur Jafa, Edna Mae Harris, Toni Cade Bambara, and many others. As a programmer (1971-2012), she organized conferences and film festivals that focused on the rich, yet often obscure, history of African Americans in film. The audio in this project is from unique recordings of the interviews, conferences, and film festivals captured by Pearl Bowser. Some of the recordings may have lower quality and require close attention to understand the content, and some speakers may not be identified, or the recordings may not include the beginning of their remarks. If a speaker cannot be identified either by context in the recording or by notes from the project team, please list them as “unidentified speaker” in the transcription. Some of the recordings may contain sensitive or offensive language. For historical accuracy, our policy is to transcribe the language as it is presented in the recordings. See TC’s FAQ page for more information on transcribing sensitive language. All recordings are in the English language. The transcriptions created by TC volunteers will be used to make these unique and important recordings accessible to researchers, scholars, and the general public.
