Abstract/ Summary

Pamela Dean has joined the staff of the Maine Folklife Center as archivist of the Northeast Archives of Folklore and Oral History. A native of Bar Harbor, Dean received her Bachelor of Arts and Masters Degree in history from the University of Maine and her Ph.D. in history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From 1991 to 1999 she was the director of the Williams Center for Oral History at Louisiana State University.

"My career as an archivist and oral historian began in Sandy lves's fieldwork class in the early eighties," Dean said. "You know that book about 'I learned everything I need to know in kindergarten?' Well, I learned everything I needed to know in the basement of South Stevens Hall (where the Northeast Archives was then located)."
