Correspondents include folklorist and writer Archie Green; writer and donor D. K. Wilgus and his wife, Eleanor R. Long Wilgus; and Ralph Steele Boggs, founder of the Curriculum in Folklore at the University of North Carolina in 1939.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 2. Legend of Frankie Silver, 1822-2000 (bulk 1995-2000) and undated.

About 400 items.

Folder 24 contains a detailed list of the folders in this section that was created by the Pattersons.

This series contains material related to the folk legends, history, and projects about Frankie Silver. In 1833, Frankie Silver of Burke County, N.C., was executed for the murder of her husband. The story gave rise to folk ballads, legends, and much historical research over the years. Daniel and Beverly Patterson, along with filmmaker Tom Davenport, worked on a documentary with Bobby McMillon, a singer, storyteller, and descendant of the Silver family, about the legend called The Ballad of Frankie Silver. Daniel Patterson went on to write a book in 2000 entitled A Tree Accurst: Bobby McMillon and Stories of Frankie Silver . The Pattersons also have written papers on the topic. This series includes research materials on the legend and similar legends and ballads, correspondence related to Frankie Silver and the video, and copies of historical documents and news items dating from 1822 to the 1950s. The Pattersons also researched interpretations and discussions of the legend, the Silver family, and its descendants.

Audio material includes music related to the Frankie Silver ballad, spoken versions of the folk legend, field recordings of Bobby McMillon singing ballads, and several interviews with McMillon. Video material includes documentaries about and dramatic interpretations of the Frankie Silver legend.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 3. Shaker material, 1780-2001 and undated.

About 1,300 items.

Patterson has worked on several projects related to the religious sect known as the Shakers. The Shakers were founded in the late 18th century, reached their peak membership between 1830 and 1840, and eventually declined in number. During that time, they became known for the simple and practical style they applied to furniture, art, and music.

In 1974, Patterson made The Shakers with film maker Tom Davenport of Davenport Films. Patterson has written two books about the Shakers. Gift Drawing and Gift Song: a Study of Two Forms of Shaker Inspiration (1983) and centers on the Shakers' distinctive art and music. The Shaker Spiritual (1979) was re-released as a new edition in 2000. This book concentrates on Shaker music.

This series contains correspondence, Patterson's subject files and notes, printed material and clippings, and pictures related to the Shakers, their art and music, and Patterson's books. Note that original folder titles have, for the most part, been retained.

About 200 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Sounds of the South was a conference held in April 1989 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to mark the opening of the Southern Folklife Collection, which Daniel Patterson had helped to establish. The conference was known as "A Conference on the Collecting and Collections of Southern Traditional Music" and featured several speakers. These speeches were recorded, and the transcriptions were used to develop Sounds of the South, a book of essays published in 1991.

This series consists of correspondence, writings, and printed material related to the conference and book Sounds of the South. Material includes newsletters featuring updates on the conference, grant applications, budget considerations, promotional material, and lists of participants. Also included are transcriptions of tapes made from the conference, the development of the speeches into essays, and pictures used for the book.

About 200 items.

The material in this series traces the history of the Southern Folklife Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from its time as the University of North Carolina Folk Archives in the 1960s through the acquisition of the John Edwards Memorial Collection in 1983 and its development into the Southern Folklife Collection in 1989. Patterson was very involved in all phases of this development and used his many contacts to expand the collection and increase awareness of it. Material includes correspondence; grant applications; and financial, space, and equipment considerations. Correspondents include folklorist and writer Archie Green and writer and donor D. K. Wilgus and his wife, Eleanor Wilgus. There is also correspondence, 1977-1980 and 1993, requesting donations of field recordings and other items to add to the collection from various folklorists, former folklore students, and historians. Included is correspondence with Ralph Steele Boggs, founder of the Curriculum in Folklore at the University of North Carolina in 1939.

About 900 items.

Patterson arranged his correspondence into several categories: with folk music researchers; with writers and people not related to folklore; to, from, and about folklorists; with people involved in the performance or study of religious folksong; correspondence and material related to religious tune book compilers; and by subject, including miscellaneous categories.

Correspondence with folk music researchers includes notes and brief biographies provided by Patterson, and essays and papers associated with correspondents. Folk music researchers include several graduate students; professor Cecelia Conway; Sacred Harp leader Raymond Hamrick; poet Kent S. Hedman about coming back to the United States after serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War; musician B. L. Lunsford; Hugh McGraw of Sacred Harp Publishing; folklorist Bobby McMillon; and archaeologist Stanley South.

Correspondence with writers and others not related to folklore includes some background information from Patterson. Correspondents include novelist Russell Banks and composer Thomas N. Rice.

Correspondence with and about folklorists includes letters from Ralph Steele Boggs, founder of the University of North Carolina Curriculum in Folklore; researcher of Native American music Joe Liles; and blues collector and record producer Peter B. Lowry.

Correspondence with people involved in the performance or study of religious folksong includes letters from composers and co-editors of The Christian Harmony , John Deason and Bennie Rigdon; professor John Garst; and Primitive Baptists.

Correspondence and research materials related to religious tunebook compilers were used by Patterson on various projects. The material includes copies of manuscripts and articles, 1848-1894, and correspondence with institutions and individuals while he was trying to find more information on the compilers. Tunebook compilers include collector William E. Chute (1832-1900) and William Hauser (1812-1880), who wrote newspaper articles about music and wrote a shape-note tune book. This material was used by Patterson in his article "William Hauser's Hesperian Harp and Olive Leaf: Shape-Note Tunebooks as Emblems of Change and Progress," in the Journal of American Folklore, 1988. John G. McCurry wrote a shape-note songbook called The Social Harp in 1855. Patterson and John Garst published a facsimile of it in 1973. In 1978, a recording of some of the songs from The Social Harp was made by Rounder Records, featuring notes by Patterson.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 9. Pictures, 1837-1989 and undated.

100 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Pictures include photographs and slides of folk musicians, traditions such as Easter egg decoration and quilting, and other images such as photographs of folklorist Ralph Steele Boggs and pictures from a "manless wedding" comic spoof. Some pictures were part of Patterson's students' class projects. There are several photographs that are copies of older undated photographs or photographic copies of manuscripts. One dated religious tune book manuscript is from 1837; the rest are undated but possibly also from the 1800s. Photographs titled "Negro Baptizings" and "Old Buck at Rodanthe" are copies of older photographs probably dating from the 1800s as well. Researchers are advised to see Folder 404 for background information on the pictures provided by Patterson.
