Abstract/ Summary

During the past academic year the Northeast Archives of Folklore and Oral History at the University of Maine at Orono completed several major accessioning projects. From Lynn Franklin of the Portland Press Herald, they received almost 70 taped interviews with Mainers from all walks of life. James R. Wilson of Rutgers donated his collection of Miramichi Valley (N.B.) material: field tapes, recordings of the Miramichi Folksong Festival, and dubbings from the Louise Manny Collection. And the indefatigable David Littleton-Taylor deposited still more interviews with lobster fishermen. Several smaller accessions from independent researchers such as John J. Kelly, Jr., and Norman Cazden were also received, as was an oral history of life on the islands of Penobscot Bay done by the Maine Bureau of Public Lands.
