Sound: Accession 1987-028 · Fonds · [ca.1975]-1977; 1980

Fonds consists of the research done by Barss and Gordon for "Older Ways: Traditional Nova Scotia Craftsmen" published in 1980. Between 1975 and 1977 they interviewed and photographed 30 artisans who were practicing a traditional craft in Nova Scotia, which produced a practical item (i.e. folk artists were eliminated). Included are: images taken by Barss of the craftspeople at work; interviews with the craftspeople conducted by Barss and Gordon; the creator's grant applications and correspondence, press clippings, etc., relating to the 1977 exhibit at Mount St Vincent Art Gallery based on their research; and a copy of their final publication. Of those interviewed, 19 artisans were from Lunenburg County, five from Kings County, and three from both Queens and Annapolis Counties. Their crafts include the making of fish nets, sails, knives, baskets, butter churns and tool handles. During their interviews, they discuss the technical aspects of their craft as well as modern lifestyles and values as compared to traditional ones.

Allen Fraser
SMI 1992-050 · Fonds · [192-]-1953

Fonds consists of amateur films, predominantly by Allen Fraser. The films were found by Fraser's daughter among her late father's effects. Allen Fraser's will was signed 16 Sept 1938 and he had not designated an heir to his photographic equipment (which was mentioned specifically) when he died in 1941. Three films document Allen Fraser's trip[s] to Bermuda, circa early 1920s. They depict both tourist and Bermudian lifestyles - sometimes in interesting contrast. One of the Bermuda rolls includes the film "Lily Fields of Bermuda," which may have been done by Fraser as well. Four films document various activities and scenes in Nova Scotia during the late 1920s and 1930s. These four include a Guide's Meet at Lake William, Lunenburg County; Dartmouth Natal Day 1932; folk dance demonstration on Studley field, Dalhousie University; golfing; football; Halifax landmarks; and a large exhibition. One of these four rolls contains a short film entitled "A Screen Scrapbook" which depicts a dance tableau. Three films are of Halifax (and Nova Scotia in general) during and after the Second World War. As Allen died in 1941, all footage taken after this period may be attributed to his brother Russell. This would include a hunting trip to Cape Breton in the autumn of 1947 and footage of Lunenburg's 200th Anniversary parade in 1953. The fonds also includes a short film by W.G.C. (Billy) Strickland entitled "The Sherry Party."
