John Jacob Niles( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents a portrait of the adding machine repairman who came to eastern Kentucky in 1909, "heard the songs [his] father sang," and became a much-noted "arranger, expander, collector, recorder, and performer" of traditional Appalachian ballads. Niles played an important part in the national "discovery" of Appalachian folk music. He describes how, during the 1920s and '30s, he and photographer Doris Ulmann travelled the mountain region--she taking pictures of the people and he learning their songs. The film shows Niles in concert, at home, at work arranging his music, and explaining the historical place of balladry in American music"--Appalshop website

Doris Ulmann photograph collection by Doris Ulmann( Visual )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collection consists of ca. 3000 photographic prints, primarily platinum but some photogravure. Typical subjects include Sherwood Anderson, Calvin Coolidge, Esther Forbes, Martha Graham, Sinclair Lewis, Edna St. Vincent Millay, the Columbia University medical faculty, Johns Hopkins University medical faculty, and American editors. There are also examples of some of her best-known African-American and Appalachian photographs. Ulmann published portrait portfolios for various institutions and photographed for books on African-American and Appalachian cultures. Although many of the images are unidentified, they are the largest known body of prints made by Ulmann herself and valuable records of how she intended her pictures to be presented. Some prints are signed; early works bear her married name, Doris Jaeger
John C. Campbell Folk School campus: Olive Campbell’s bedroom by Doris Ulmann( Visual )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This unsigned photograph, taken by Doris Ulmann in 1933 or 1934, shows a corner in Olive Dame Campbell's bedroom at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Campbell resided in the Farm House, the only pre-existing structure on the school's property. A woven coverlet covers the bed and a second one is folded at the foot. A sedge broom stands in the corner of the hearth with an iron shovel. On the mantle piece are a carved bowl, a carved horse, a carved mule, and a barely visible iron candlestick holder. The wall hanging at the foot of the bed has a mountain scene woven into it. The photograph's verso reads "Mrs. Campbell's home, Brasstown, N.C."
Scroggs store with men on front porch by Doris Ulmann( Visual )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This photograph of men on the porch of Fred O. Scrogg's store in Brasstown, N.C. was taken by Doris Ulmann in 1933 or 1934. The back of the photograph reads, ""Sons of Rest" at Fred O's Store. Fred O. (in doorway) - Roy Teems (left foreground) - Bill Clayton (on chair)." Scroggs and his store were significant in the creation of the John C. Campbell Folk School and the development of the woodcarving program which later became known as the Brasstown Carvers. Scroggs was instrumental in organizing community support for the school. Lore has it that Olive Dame Campbell witnesses the men idly whittling away at the bench in front of the store and had the idea to recruit them to make carvings for sale. This bench is now in the collection at the school's History Center
Bill Clayton by Doris Ulmann( Visual )
