Title: Justin Partyka / "The Occupational Folklife of a Norfolk Lurcherman"
Description: Master's thesis, submitted to the Department of Folklore, Memorial University, Newfoundland. A lurcherman is an individual who hunts using the type of cross-breed running dog known as a lurcher. Lurchermen sometimes hunted legally, but were also poachers. The principal individual with whom Partyka worked is Pete Carter, a musician whose other passion is working with lurchers; Carter wrote articles under the pen name Stag Carter in a British magazine for fieldsports enthusiasts. Given the current push for legislation to make hunting with dogs illegal, the thesis documents a traditional occupation before it possibly disappears. Covers knowledge of the trade, tools and techniques, the art of lurcher breeding, as well as recipes for rabbit dishes.

Title: Ken Lindsay Collection of Woody Guthrie Correspondence
Description: The correspondence between Ken Lindsay and Woody Guthrie began in 1952, while Lindsay was responsible for the mail order record department at the International Bookshop on Charing Cross Road in London, England. Lindsay first wrote to Guthrie encouraging him to write and record material for the European market. Although the recording projects and the European tours discussed in their letters never materialized, this correspondence (1952-1953) captures the development of a special relationship between two men who never met, but shared a passion for music. The correspondence also provides a glimpse at the creative flair and the personal challenges that shaped this period of Guthrie’s life. There are fifteen letters written by Ken Lindsay, seven written by Woody Guthrie, two written by Marjorie Guthrie (Guthrie’s second wife), and two written by Anneke Van Kirk (Guthrie’s third wife). In addition to the letters, there are four pages of song lyrics written by Woody Guthrie that he sent to Ken Lindsay with his letters. Some of the letters and song lyrics are embellished with drawings. The letters written by Ken Lindsay are carbon copies that Lindsay kept of his original letters.
