Notes:
Charlie Dunn is a fourth-generation bootmaker, from a family of Irish cobblers who moved to the U.S. in the early 1800s. At eight he began an apprenticeship for a one-legged bootmaker in Paris, Texas, beginning a career that has lasted (with a brief retirement) ever since. Practicing now in Austin, Texas, he is regarded as one of the best bootmakers in the world.
Summary:
Newspaper and magazine articles, radio broadcast transcripts, and advertisements relating to Dunn's career. In addition there is a documentary of Dunn's craft on video tape, photographs, miscellaneous business stationery, and a research project titled "Charlie and Cecile Dunn: A Study in Retirement" (1978) by Linda Gann.
