Abstract/ Summary

The Maine Folklife Survey finished up its 18-month stint here at the Northeast Archives with a great deal of good work done and several products available for school and community use. We have enclosed in this issue of the Newsletter the brochure, with ordering information, for two photographic exhibits and a slide-tape show entitled Maine's Folklife. This slide show illustrates folk art, horse-pulling, folk architecture, and coastal life as it occurs in Maine. This 80-image slide show has a tape running under 30 minutes.

...Another major product of the Maine Folklife Survey is a publication, The Maine Folklife Index: Resources for Study, compiled by Dick Lunt. This book is a very useful tool in locating everything from unpublished documents to photographs to objects of folk art, as they are currently being held in libraries, museums, and personal collections across the State of Maine.
