Field Notes

Collection Creator:
Chapman, Anne, 1922-2010  Search this
Extent:
0.83 Linear feet
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1964-1965
1955-1960
Scope and Contents:
During her fieldwork in Montaña de la Flor, Chapman worked most closely with Alfonso Martinez, a Tolupan who lived near the east entrance to the community. Through her conversations with him, Chapman was able to document Tolupan oral tradition and social organization, and elaborate community genealogies. She developed a close relationship with him through their work together, recognizing his intelligence, inquisitiveness, and cultural awareness. Chapman last met with him in 1964; Alfonso, his wife Todivia Soto, and daughter Maria died of measles in 1969.

This series consists of two copies of Chapman's ethnographic and personal diary from the period of October 1955 through January 1960, when she was conducting her fieldwork among the Tolupan. Copy 1 is missing pages 469 --631; Copy 2 is complete. In addition, the series includes field notes from a return trip in 1964, documenting conversations with Alfonso Martinez related to Tolupan mythology and cosmology.

Chapman created a four-part index to the diary, included here in duplicate. Part I is a summary index, addressing mythology, social organization, settlement, and history; Part II focuses on economic themes; Part III addresses her observations on Ladinos; and Part IV indexes her field notes related to Alfonso Martinez.
Collection Restrictions:

Collection Rights:

Date:
1982 May 7-9
Scope and Contents:
The concert and colloquium held May 7-9, 1982, at Baird Auditorium, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution was created to pay tribute to Reverend Charles Albert Tindley, a pioneer in gospel music. Tindley's compositions formed a base upon which the new Black urban sacred gospel music was developed. Tindley's style influenced all of the early gospel music composers including Thomas A. Dorsey, Lucie Elizabeth Campbell, Roberta Martin, and Reverend William Herbert Brewster. The gospel songs composed by Tindley include "Stand By Me", "The Storm Is Passing Over", "We'll Understand It Better By and By", "Nothing Between", and "Leave It There". Tindley's songs moved quickly into the Black oral tradition and today, many of his songs are part of the pool of Black music by unknown composers.

This musical tribute was an original production conceived of and directed by Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, director, Program in Black Culture (later known as the Program in African American Culture). The script was created by Eleanor Traylor and featured Reverend Tindley's songs as they were developed within the performancve tradition of Tindley Temple. The colloquium included Black music scholars, theologians, and others who knew and worked under the tutelage of Reverend Tindley. Participates included Reverend Marion Ballard, Dr. Horace C. Boyer, Kenneth Goodman, Dr. William C. Jason, Jr., Ralph H. Jones, Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, Wayne Shirley and Pearl Williams-Jones.

The program was presented again on April 28 and 29, 1984 at the Tindley Temple United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by the Tribute to Tindley Committee. Program number AC408.15.
