Abstract/ Summary

The Society's Annual Meeting was held on Saturday, June 12, at the Memorial Union on the University of Maine (Orono) campus. The morning session was devoted to the business meeting, the minutes of which are summarized elsewhere in this Newsletter, followed by an Open House at the Northeast Archives of Folklore and Oral History. In the afternoon, there were three short presentations on the general topic, "Folklore Field Work in the Maritime Provinces." Carole Spray of Fredericton, N.B., spoke on "Collecting Folklore in New Brunswick: An Amateur's Experiences"; Catherine Jolicoeur of the Centre Universitaire, Saint-Louis-Maillet, Edmundston, N.B., spoke on "Collecting Acadian Legends: How I Began, Where I've Been, Where I'm Going." And Cora Greenaway of Dartmouth, N.S., spoke on "Painted Walls in Nova Scotia," illustrating her talk with a series of slides. After a short break for coffee there was a showing of "From the Heart: Canadian Folk Artists," a C.B.C. video presentation profiling fifteen Canadian folk artists. This presentation came through the courtesy of C.B.C. and the Producer Director, Donnalu Wigmore.
