ANNAMAE BARLUP MYERS 1946

The Annamae Myers diaries record the activities of a farm family in Ohio, 1931-1967. There are daily entries about the weather and frequent mention of trips to the hairdresser and trips to the children's music and dancing lessons and to town for shopping, movies, or to pay bills. The diaries include frequent entries of amounts received for the sale of farm produce, and some financial data are entered at the end of each volume, but such entries are neither regular nor complete. They do however provide information on prices for agricultural products in a rural community. Major political and historic events are noted. There is infrequent reference to the emotions generated by family living and by the historic and political events of the twentieth century. Also includes a few diaries kept by Stephen Harriman, Mrs. Myers' maternal grandfather, with very brief daily entries of the weather, trips to town, visits made and visitors to the farm, and the start of farm operations, i.e., plowing, sowing.

Barbeque narrative; Miller, Barrs, Crosby, Joiner; Pattman and Harris

The 1980 Folklife Festival included a program about Community Activities and Food Preservation presented by participants from rural Georgia. Throughout rural America, events known as Homecomings served as a way to pull the community together, and food played a central role in such events. Participants demonstrated and educated visitors on such food preservation techniques as canning, pickling, meat smoking, wine making, and "found food" preparation, among other topics. Help transcribe these Festival recordings to learn more about how food can create community and preserve local tradition. Please view the instructions for transcribing audio collections before beginning. If you can identify the speakers, please do so using the format {SPEAKER NAME= "____" } if you cannot identify the speakers, please simply indicate when a different individual is speaking by inserting the "Speaker 1," "Speaker 2," etc. tags. For more information about the programs in these recordings, please look at the audio log sheets describing the content and speakers at each presentation.
