Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles about the property.
General:
The Federal style house was built ca. 1825 by Colonel Conrad Webb, and overlooks the Pamunkey River. Some colonial era plantings on the property predate the house. There was a terraced garden leading to the river, at one time called the most elaborate in the state. The property was planted with magnolia trees, crape myrtle and boxwood bordered garden beds that contained old-fashioned flowers, and also had undisturbed old-growth forest trees.
The red brick house has identical porticoes in the front and back that are supported by four two-story columns, in the style identified with Adams. Also there are walls on the property built of red brick. The original roof parapet, of early 19th c. design survives and was studied as a model for the restoration of Virginia's capital building in Richmond, in the 1980s when the property was owned by Mr. and Mrs. William J. Wallace. An overseer's house with wooden siding also was found on the property.
Persons associated with the garden include the Webb family, Colonel Conrad Webb (former owner, 1825- ) and Mr. and Mrs. William J. Wallace (former owner, 1950s-1980s).

Date:
circa 1907-circa 1957
Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Northeast/Southeast series contains Harrington's research on Powhatan for his monograph "The Original Strachey Vocabulary of the Virginia Indian Language," which was published by the Smithsonian in 1955. The monograph is based on the vocabulary contained in William Strachey's Historie of Travaile into Virginia Britannia, a manuscript in the possession of the Bodleian Library. A British Museum manuscript of a slightly different version of the Strachey vocabulary was printed and published in 1849 by the Hakluyt Society. Harrington utilized microfilm and photocopies of the two manuscripts and the Hakluyt publication in his work.

A typed draft of the article is followed by related notes (former B.A.E. ms. 6024), not all of which found their way into the final publication. Most noteworthy is a comparison of John Smith's vocabulary from A Map of Virginia (1612) with the Hakluyt version of Strachey's vocabulary. A short vocabulary of Pamunkey collected by the Reverend Mr. Dalrymple (Dalrimple) in 1844 and published by "C. C" in 1858 is compared with A Lenape-English Dictionary (1888) by Brinton and Anthony.

Harrington arranged Strachey's vocabulary one term to a page in the same alphabetic order as in the original manuscript. He copied Brinton and Anthony's translations for the same words, if such existed, and made note of divergences between the Bodleian Library and British Museum manuscripts. References to the British Museum are often preceded by the designation "Brit."; "1849" identifies terms from the Hakluyt publication. Included are the notes for Harrington's semantic arrangement of Strachey's terms found on pages 197 to 202 in "The Original Strachey Vocabulary." The label "Strachey" followed by a number indicates the number of the facsimile sheet on which the entry appears. The facsimile sheets are placed between pages 196 and 197. Strachey also copied the song of the Indians and Harrington compared some of the terms with those of Brinton and Anthony. A very brief morphological arrangement was begun by Harrington but apparently abandoned. Likewise, there is the mere beginning of a section comparing terms from Strachey vocabulary with those of the Abenaki, Delaware, and Natick languages. Miscellaneous notes include preliminary partial drafts and related notes, some general bibliographical information, and material marked "Rejects" by Harrington.

Water Ways: Mid-Atlantic Maritime Communities

Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage  Search this

Introduction:
Water Ways: Mid-Atlantic Maritime Communities was a Festival program about change and renewal, pride in the past and hope for the future, and the interconnectedness of cultural life and natural history in the region. It was composed of the stories of Festival participants and their communities, told in their own words. It spoke about their joys, frustrations, and efforts to conserve the rich heritage that permeates this region like the smell of salt water and marsh mud. The people who live around the ocean and bays, marshes and swamps, rivers and creeks of the Mid-Atlantic had lifetimes of knowledge that they generously shared with Festival visitors on the National Mall.

To illustrate the rich complexity of the story, the program and accompanying program book article gave particular attention to three natural resources that have been important throughout the region's history: oysters, shad, and Atlantic white cedar. The past, present, and future of the region were synopsized in these resources, all three of which cut deeply into cultural, economic, and ecological life. Each carried with it stories of exploitation, decline, and renewal of the resources that shaped Mid-Atlantic maritime community culture, the theme that brought the whole region into focus.

So many changes have occurred over the past couple of generations for maritime communities in this region that long-time residents can sometimes barely recognize their hometowns. A deep sense of loss tempered many of the stories that they told to Smithsonian researchers or to Festival visitors. But maritime communities often adapt to changes. When one species of fish becomes scarce or unmarketable, you fish for another. When crabbing with wire mesh pots proves more efficient than trot-lining (running a baited line across a section of water), you buy or learn to make pots. When recreational fishing catches on in your area, you fish for bait or get a charter-boat license. When the oyster-shucking or crab-picking plant shuts down, you get a job cooking at a local seafood restaurant or a nearby school. It's all about adaptation, flexibility, and survival - and it was these values that were on abundant display during the two weeks of the 2004 Festival. A website presented the field research and Festival activities.

Betty J. Belanus was Curator and Arlene Reiniger was Coordinator; Amy Skillman was Fieldwork Coordinator.

The program was made possible by a partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and produced in collaboration with the State of Maryland, National Endowment for the Arts, and Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network/ National Park Service; with generous contributions from Virginia Historic Resources, Mary Ball Washington Museum & Library, St. Mary's White Chapel Episcopal Church, Maryland State Arts Council, North Carolina Arts Council, North Carolina Tourism, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Phillips Seafood, and The Nature Conservancy; and with special thanks to National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.

Roots of Virginia Culture: The Past is Present

Collection Creator:
Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage  Search this

Archival materials
Introduction:
Today's Virginians include people whose ancestors have always been here, descendants of the original Jamestown settlers, the progeny of the first West Africans, and more recent immigrants from Africa, Southeast Asia, and Central America. They live and work from Virginia's Atlantic coast to its Appalachian Mountains, from remote coal-mining towns in the southwest to bustling suburbs in the north. But no matter how deep their roots, Virginians strive with dedication and innovation to document and present their cultural heritage, adapting tradition to change and using the past to inform the present and future.

The 2007 Festival explored three "roots" of Virginia's culture: Native American, English, and African American. These groups supported the growth of a diverse, yet unified society in what would become Virginia. At the Festival, present-day Virginians were joined by delegations from Kent County, England (one of the counties from which the original settlers came and the burial place of Pocahontas) and West Africa (an area from which many enslaved Africans came to Virginia). By demonstrating and performing many parallel cultural traditions side by side, craftspeople, musicians, cooks, agriculturalists, and maritime experts demonstrated that different cultures can have much in common and can borrow from each other to forge a nation. Festival presentations were organized around three themes:

Continuing the Past. -- Many traditions in Virginia; Kent County, England; and West Africa remain "unbroken" within families and communities. A number of crafts, such as pottery, blacksmithing, wood carving, and needlework, span the generations; craftspeople interpret and produce them according to their own tastes and market demand. Festival visitors could interact with contemporary adherents of these ancient traditions.

Transforming the Past. -- While tracing the roots of Virginia culture, historians find many tradition bearers who, by necessity or desire, refashion their skills. For example, in Virginia, as well as in Kent County, England, fruit farmers find it hard to keep their businesses profitable because of cheaper imports; many have quit farming and have sold their land to developers. Growers have responded and now gourmet cooks can find heirloom varieties of Virginia apples at farmers' markets. The growers bring the taste of Virginia's past to the present and make it profitable and sustainable.

Researching and Interpreting the Past. -- The ability to research and interpret the past requires years of study, determination, and "learning by doing." Digging up the past is the professional passion of archaeologists at sites such as Historic Jamestowne. Family and community researchers collect oral histories and search for clues in archives and databases. Festival visitors could listen as they explained their work, and could pose questions about adapting such skills to their own lives.

Betty J. Belanus was Curator of the program, and Diana N'Diaye was Curator of African/African American Roots. Dorey Butter was Program Coordinator and Beverly Simons was Program Assistant. For Jamestown 2007, Jeanne Zeidler was Executive Director and Amy Ritchie was Manager of Statewide Programs and Smithsonian Project Manager. For Kent, England, Rebecca Casson was Head of Kent Virginia Development; Hollie Snelson was Smithsonian Project Manager; and Leila Maggs was Smithsonian Project Coordinator.

The program was produced in partnership with Jamestown 2007: America's 400th Anniversary and the Kent County Council. The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African American History and Culture was the Smithsonian Institution partner. Lead supporters of Jamestown 2007 included the Norfolk Southern Corporation, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Verizon, and Anheuser-Busch Companies. Other supporters included AirTran Airways, Dominion, James City County, Philip Morris USA, SunTrust, and Wolseley PLC/Ferguson Enterprises Inc.
