Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania Audio Recordings

Identifier: 12

Scope and Contents

This series consists of original minidisc, DAT and cassette interview recordings resulting from the Klines' work beginning in 2004, documenting the multi ethnic folklife and local memory in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania in the eastern anthracite coal country of northern Appalachia. Traditions represented include those of Germany, England, Wales, Ireland, Italy, Poland, The Ukraine, Lithuania, the Carpatho-Rusyn region, Pakistan, India, other parts of Asia, and Latin America.

Preservation of these interviews was made possible by a Recordings-At -Risk grant from the Council On Library and Information Resources (CLIR). The CLIR grant program is made possible by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
