About Tidewater Main Street Development Project
The transcripts and podcasts for the Tidewater Main Street Development Project are the result of two years of field work by Jessica Taylor, a former graduate coordinator of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program. In October of 2014, she organized the inaugural Virginia Fieldwork in Folklore research trip, leading a research team of interns, SPOHP staff and graduate students to eastern Virginia to record oral histories focusing on folklore, traditional crafts, and rural development with residents of Mathews and Middlesex Counties. The Samuel Proctor Oral History Program is planning on returning to Virginia in October of 2015.
