Scope & Content correspondence

CREATOR:Linda Danielson├╝Daniel Robertson├╝Carole Daly

REMARKS:The Oregon Old-TIme Fiddlers Project was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts in 1976-77. Its stated purpose was "to collect, preserve, and redisseminate the music and national knowledge of old-time fiddling as found in Lane, Douglas, and Jackson counties, Oregon. THe counties were selected because of the large concentration of fiddlers in the area, the project coordinator's personal acquaintance with many of them, and the co-operative interest in such a project displayed by the historical museums in neach county." [from SUMMARY OF PROJECT DESCRIPTION in grant application].; This small collection contains correspondence between project director Linda Danielson and staff of the Douglas County Museum of History and Natural History concerning copyright law implications of the collection. Apparently, judging from the correspondence, appropriate releases were not obtained from interviewees or subjects of photographs, so the materials collected cannot be published or otherwise disseminated. The location of the audiotapes and photographs collected in this project were not clarified by the correspondence. A list entitled, "Collection Catalogue", is included with these papers. The catalogue identiviews the subjects of each audiocassette tape recording.; Although the project was funded for 1976-77, correspondence continues through 1986 concerning copyright implications of the materials.
