Summary:
The papers of Edward C. Green, circa 1970-2016, document his work as an applied medical anthropologist and research consultant focusing principally on the distribution and prevention of AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases in Africa and South America. Much of Green's research and policy focus lay in understanding indigenous health belief systems and instituting locally-designed approaches to major health concerns. The collection consists of correspondence, field diaries and typed research, sound recordings, photographs, and published reports and articles, including material from his dissertation research among the Matawai Maroons of Suriname.
Scope and Contents:
The papers of Edward C. Green, circa 1970-2016, document his field research in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America and his career as an applied medical anthropologist and research consultant focusing principally on the distribution and prevention of AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. The collection consists of correspondence, field diaries and typed research, photographs, sound recordings, and published reports and articles.

The bulk of the material covers Green's field research undertaken predominantly in the Dominican Republic, Mozambique, Suriname, and Swaziland. Of note are sound recordings of interviews, songs, and rituals recorded in Suriname between 1971 and 1973. These recordings document the Matawai dialect of the Saramaccan language, an endagered creole dialect derived from Portuguese, English, and Afro-Caribbean sources. Correspondence in the collection dates from 1973 to 2015 and is a mix of personal and professional correspondence with colleagues and friends. Publications retained in the collection consist primarily of reports on healthcare policy and education, produced between 1978 and 2016 and written for state agencies and non-governmental organizations for which Green worked as a consultant. The bulk of the reports were produced with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) or one of its subsidiary funds.
Arrangement:
This collection is arranged in 3 series:

(1) Field notes, circa 1970-2016

(2) Publications, circa 1978-2016

(3) Correspondence, 1973-2015
Biographical Note:
Edward Crocker "Ted" Green is an applied medical anthropologist who has served as the director of the AIDS Prevention Research Project at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies (2006-2010) and as the founder and president of the New Paradigm Fund (2010-). He was born in 1944 to the Hon. Marshall Green, a United States diplomat, and Lispenard "Lisa" Crocker Green. He earned his bachelor's degree in anthropology from George Washington University (1967), his master's in anthropology from Northwestern University (1968), and his PhD in anthropology from the Catholic University of America (1974). Green produced his dissertation on the Matawai Maroons of Suriname. He served as the National Institute of Mental Health Fellow at Vanderbilt University from 1978-1979 and as the Takemi Fellow at Harvard University from 2001-2002.

Green's career focused on healthcare education and international policy surrounding sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS in addition to family planning, maternal and child health, primary health care, children impacted by war, and water and sanitation. Much of Green's research and policy focus lay in understanding indigenous health belief systems and in instituting locally-designed approaches to major health concerns. He has served with the Department of Population and Reproductive Health at Johns Hopkins University and as the Senior Research Scientist for International Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He has also served on over a dozen advisory boards or boards of directors, including the UNAIDS Steering Committee, AIDS2031 (2008-2009); the Presidential Advisory Council for HIV/AIDS (2003-2007); the Office of AIDS Research Advisory Council, National Institutes of Health (2003-2006); and the Global Initiative for Traditional Systems of Health, Oxford University (2000-).

Summary:
The Frederic G. Cassidy papers contain sound recordings and partial transcriptions; drafts of manuscripts and conference papers; and one map, all relating to his work on Jamaican and Creole lanugages.
Scope and Contents:
Of primary interest in the Frederic G. Cassidy papers are his 1952 sound recordings of everyday Jamaican people.

Frederic Gomes Cassidy (1907-2000) was a Jamaican-born lexicographer who is best known as a long time editor and director of the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) Project at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he was a professor of English. In 1951 Cassidy received a Fullbright Research Fellowship to go back to Jamaica to interview people about their daily lives. These recordings became the source for Jamaica Talk (1961) and the Dictionary of Jamaican English (1967) which he co-authored with R.B.LePage.
Related Materials:
Digital surrogates of the sound recordings are also held by the Dictionary of American Regional English at the University of Wisconsin and at the University of the West Indies Archives in Kingston, Jamaica.

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1970-1984
Scope and Contents:
This subseries contains field recordings made by Green during his dissertation research in Suriname among the Matawai Maroons. Recordings contain ceremonies, interviews, language lessons, radio broadcasts, and songs conducted in English, Sranan, and Matawai. Matawai is an endangered creole dialect of the Saramaccan language, derived from Portuguese, English, and Afro-Caribbean sources.

Recordings are on 22 sound cassettes, 4 audio CDs, and 1 USB flash drive. The USB flash drive (Green Digital Item 03) came in as part of a 2018 accretion to the Edward C. Green papers. It contains digitized files of field audio recordings, likely duplicate files (with different names) from the audio recordings present on the audio cassettes and CDs.

Also included in this subseries is 1 DVD entitled "Swaziland Music and Reed Dance/Suriname," which came to the NAA as part of a 2018 accretion to the Green papers. It is listed at the end of this subseries.

Scope and Contents note:
Connecting the Worlds of the African Diaspora: The Living Legacy of Lorenzo Dow Turner was a symposium held at the Anacostia Community Museum November 12-13, 2010. The keynote speaker was Emory Shaw Campbell, and other participants included Alcione M. Amos, Herb Frazier, Thomas B. Klein, Livio Sansone, and Kevin A. Yalvington. The symposium was held in association with the Word, Shout, Song exhibition, which documented the historical journey made by people from Africa, their language, and their music, to the Americas. Through words, music, and story, Lorenzo Dow Turner discovered in the 1930s that the Gullah people of Georgia and South Carolina still possessed parts of the culture and language of their enslaved ancestors, which had long been believed lost. The exhibit was on view at the Anacostia Community Museum from August 9, 2010 to July 24, 2011, during which time the Lorenzo Dow Turner Symposium was held at the museum. This collection contains video and audio recordings documenting the exhibit-related symposium.

Scope and Contents:
Connecting the Worlds of the African Diaspora: The Living Legacy of Lorenzo Dow Turner was a symposium held at the Anacostia Community Museum November 12-13, 2010. The keynote speaker was Emory Shaw Campbell, and other participants included Alcione M. Amos, Herb Frazier, Thomas B. Klein, Livio Sansone, and Kevin A. Yalvington. The symposium was held in association with the Word, Shout, Song exhibition, which documented the historical journey made by people from Africa, their language, and their music, to the Americas. Through words, music, and story, Lorenzo Dow Turner discovered in the 1930s that the Gullah people of Georgia and South Carolina still possessed parts of the culture and language of their enslaved ancestors, which had long been believed lost. The exhibit was on view at the Anacostia Community Museum from August 9, 2010 to July 24, 2011, during which time the Lorenzo Dow Turner Symposium was held at the museum. This collection contains video and audio recordings documenting the exhibit-related symposium.
