Subject: URL--Dust Bowl archival materials

Howdy all--

I send you all some URLs just before Thanksgiving about on-line
sources for historical ag photos, etc.  Just learned about this one
and am passing it along.  I haven't tried it--don't have audio on any
of the home machines--but will try it from Silicon Gulch this week.



Voices from the Dust Bowl--LOC [RealAudio, .wav]

This outstanding new addition to the US Library of Congress American
Memory Collection is an online presentation of a contemporary
ethnographic field collection that documented the lives of Dust Bowl
migrants living in Farm Security Administration (FSA) camps in
California in 1940-41. The highlight of the site is a very large
collection of audio titles (334 in all), available in both RealAudio
and .wav formats. Users can browse a list of over 100 song titles that
includes links to each song's full text and recordings made in an FSA
camp. Other audio titles include interviews, recordings of camp
meetings, and more songs (without text). Users can also browse the
audio collection with the performer/interviewee index or they can use
an internal search engine. Additional features at this site include a
collection of 23 photos, a sampling of dust jackets from recording
discs, a bibliography, and print material from the collection
including a scrapbook, newspaper clippings, camp newsletters, radio
scripts, and correspondence between the ethnographers and LOC
officials. [MD]
