East Central and Southeastern Illinois Folk Arts Surveys Collection, 1976-2003


In 1993, Phillip M. Settle, Assistant Dean of the School of Fine Arts at Eastern Illinois University, transferred records from the School of Fine Arts office to the newly-opened Tarble Arts Center. Some slides were integrated into the Center's image collection. As part of an equipment borrowing arrangement, duplicate reels from interviews conducted with traditional artists from 1976 to 1979 were deposited at the American Folklife Center's Archive of Folk Culture at the Library of Congress.
