Repository description (extant): Collections in the Northeast Archives of Folklore and Oral History at the Maine Folklife Center include those that have been generated through various class activities and grant based initiatives, as well as materials that have been deposited by donors from outside the University community. Much of the material is in the form of oral history interviews, but there are also class papers, topical surveys, field journals, photographs, commercial publications and recordings, exhibit materials, printed ephemera, and other kinds of documentation.
Within the over 3,000 individual accessions in the Northeast Archives, the range of topics covered is very broad. Our holdings are especially strong in documentation of occupations, foodways, community histories, lore and legends, traditional music, social activities, ritual and worship, material culture, and expressive arts. Other topics include logging and the lumbering industry; fishing and lobstering; women in Maine; country and western music; northeastern multi-ethnic culture; labor history; Native Americans; and tourism and hunting.
