Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

These are records of West Virginia folklorists and musicians Michael and Carrie Nobel. Their work is mainly in the form of folklife and oral history documentation of social issues, communities, events, and people.

The collection consists mainly of interview and music performance audio recordings, photographs and interview transcripts related to their extensive work in West Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Massachusetts.

Digital preservation of the recordings in Series 9, 12, 13, 14, 21 and selected ones in Series 33 and 38 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.
