Between 1937 and 1942, Stetson Kennedy led the Florida Writers Project unit on folklore, oral history, and social-ethnic studies for the Works Progress Administration. He hauled a sound recorder the size of a large coffee table around the state to capture the songs, tales, and anecdotes of pogey fishermen at Mayport, railroad gandy-dancers, Latin cigar makers, Greek spongers, and turpentiners. Among the results was what Stetson called, "...A sort of barefoot social history of Florida." All are welcome to join the discussion. Reserve it.
