BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Tillman Cadle was born on June 27, 1902 in Bryson, Tennessee to Letitia and Joseph Cadle. When Cadle was a young boy, his family moved to Bell County, Kentucky, where he began work as a trapper boy in a coal mine in Fonde, Kentucky. By 1917, when Cadle was working in Fonde, the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) organized the Kentucky coal fields. Cadle joined the union but was not very active until 1930 when he helped organize in Harlan County, Kentucky, where, years before, operators had broken the miners' union. He remained active until 1935 when he sustained a shoulder injury.

Cadle was unable to get satisfactory medical care for his shoulder and thus, upon the urging of his friend Jim Garland then living in New York City, Cadle journeyed to the city to have surgery on his shoulder. Cadle recuperated at Garland's residence, where he met Mary Elizabeth Barnicle, who then was teaching folklore at New York University. Barnicle and Cadle discovered they both were interested in collecting ballads. Thereafter, when Barnicle planned a trip to the South to collect ballads, she told Cadle, who would contact people for her to record. During this period (1935-50), Cadle traveled between New York City and Kentucky, staying for extended times in both locales, where he (at times with Barnicle) made field recordings of folk artists.

Cadle and Barnicle married around 1936, but apparently until United States entry into World War II in 1941, they lived apart for periods of time, with Barnicle staying in New York City and Cadle in Kentucky. Shortly after Japan's bombing of Pearl Harbor brought the United States into World Ward II, Cadle, who was living in New Jersey, moved to Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) to work in the shipyards. While there he contracted pneumonia and, thus, returned to the East, where he found work at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. After the war ended, Cadle moved to Middlesboro, Kentucky and in 1949 to Rich Mountain Gap, near Townsend, Tennessee, not far from Knoxville, where Barnicle had secured a teaching position at the University of Tennessee (UT). Barnicle taught for almost three years at UT. Upon her retirement in 1950, Cadle moved with her to Natick, Massachusetts. The two lived there and in Worcester, Massachusetts until 1971, when they moved back to Rich Mountain Gap. After Barnicle's death in 1978, Cadle stayed in the Rich Mountain Gap home, where he remained interested in folk music and in supporting organized labor. Cadle died on October 22, 1994.

Mary Elizabeth Barnicle was born on April 17, 1891 in Natick, Massachusetts. She attended Natick public schools and, later, Providence Latin School in Providence, Rhode Island. She worked her way through Pembroke College (then the women's college of Brown University) in Providence and graduated around 1911. After graduation Barnicle earned a scholarship to Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. There she studied medieval English literature and earned a master's degree in English. After receiving her M.A., Barnicle embarked upon a teaching career and began work towards her Ph.D. in English literature. By the early 1920s, she had completed her doctoral course work and had written a dissertation. Unfortunately, her major professor died, and Barnicle did not present her dissertation. Officially, then, Barnicle never received her Ph.D.

In the years before 1920, Barnicle became actively involved in the woman's suffrage movement and in the peace movement. Her support of these movements led to her being arrested several times. Throughout her life Barnicle supported many causes for peace and justice, among them women's rights, African-American rights, labor union organizing and anti-poverty activities.

Barnicle's teaching career took her to England; the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis-St. Paul; Connecticut College for Women in New London, Connecticut; Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio; and New York University (NYU) in New York City. At NYU in the 1930s, Barnicle taught folklore to packed classes. Students responded very positively to Barnicle, who demanded much from her students yet encouraged them to explore and question any topic.

After Barnicle married Cadle around 1936, she kept her teaching position at NYU. She and Cadle apparently lived apart for periods of time, with Cadle in Kentucky and Barnicle in New York. Nonetheless, the two continued to make field recordings. Barnicle recorded in New York City; she and Cadle recorded in Kentucky, East Tennessee, and southwest Virginia.

Barnicle met John and Alan Lomax in New York City in the early 1930s, shortly after the two had returned from their path-breaking field trip to the South. It was on this trip that the Lomaxes first began to collect folk songs and tales which primarily, but not exclusively, documented African-American culture. In New York, the Lomaxes met Barnicle's roommate, Margaret Conklin, who introduced them to Barnicle. The Lomaxes and Barnicle quickly became friends and decided in 1934 that in the near future they would go on a field trip through the South. The next summer Barnicle, Alan Lomax, and African-American folklorist Zora Neale Hurston, whom Barnicle had met in New York City, made a trip to the Southeast to record African-American artists. The three recorded singers and storytellers in Frederica (St. Simon's Island), Georgia and in Hurston's all-black home town, Eatonville, Florida. Barnicle and Lomax then journeyed to the Bahamas, where they recorded ring shouts, game songs, hymns, and ballads. Barnicle kept a set of these recordings for her collection, while Lomax deposited another set in the Archive of American Folk Song at the Library of Congress.

Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Barnicle continued to teach and to make field recordings. As mentioned in the Cadle biographical sketch, it was in the late 1930s when Barnicle met Cadle in New York City through their mutual friend, Jim Garland. Barnicle and Cadle together recorded many Tennessee and Kentucky folk artists in their native regions. In addition, in the 1930s and 1940s, Barnicle recorded in New York City. There she recorded such notable singers as Huddie Ledbetter (Lead Belly), Aunt Molly Jackson, Jim Garland, Sarah Ogan Gunning, and Dick Maitland.

In 1947, Barnicle secured a position at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Following almost three years of teaching there, she retired. She and Cadle moved to Natick, Massachusetts in 1950. They resided there and in Worcester, Massachusetts until 1971, when they moved to Rich Mountain Gap. Barnicle died on November 26, 1978 and is buried in the Grandview Cemetery, Blount County, Tennessee.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The Barnicle-Cadle Collection consists of 580 discs, 1 box of black and white photographic prints, 4 reel-to-reel audio tapes, and 5 Hollinger boxes (2.5 linear feet) which contain record jackets, copies of those jackets, and song lyrics.

SERIES AND SUBSERIES DESCRIPTIONS
1935-ca.1955, 1989

Subgroup I, BIOGRAPHICAL AND SUPPORTING MATERIALS, 1935-c.1955, 1989 and undated, Boxes 1-6 and Audio Tapes 1-4.

This subgroup contains an interview of Tillman Cadle, the original disc jackets, copies of these jackets, written song lyrics found in the collection, photographs of Cadle and Center for Appalachian Studies and Services (CASS) staff members, and tape logs written upon the dubbing of the discs onto video and audio tape. The subgroup is divided into the following series: Series A, Interview with Tillman Cadle, September 8, 1989, Tapes 1-4; Series B, Disc Jackets, 1935-c.1955 (originals and copies), Boxes 1-4; Series C, Other Materials, 1989 and undated, Box 5; Series D, Photographs, 1989 and undated, Box 6.

Series A, INTERVIEW WITH TILLMAN CADLE, September 8, 1989, Audio Tapes 1-4.

This series consists of an interview with Cadle conducted by CASS staff member Tim Stafford on September 8, 1989 at Cadle's home in Rich Gap, Townsend, Tennessee. During the interview Cadle discussed biographical details about his life, as well as facets of his work as a labor organizer and folklorist. The interview was recorded on four reel-to-reel audiotapes.

Series B, DISC JACKETS, 1935-c. 1955, [ORIGINALS AND COPIES], Boxes 1-4.

This series contains the original disc jackets, together with copies of those jackets. Song titles and/or notations about the tune or the recording are written on the jacket. The jackets are numbered to correspond to the discs they originally contained.

Series C, OTHER MATERIALS, 1948, 1989, and undated, Box 5.

This series contains song lyrics and miscellaneous notes found among the discs and tape logs made during the dubbing of the discs. The lyrics and notes have been placed first and the logs second. The logs are arranged according to the numbering sequence assigned them at the time of dubbing.

Series D, PHOTOGRAPHS, 1989 and undated, Box 6.

This series consists of 39 black and white photographic prints and 24, 35 mm, negatives of the 39 prints. Fourteen prints are 4" x 6" and were taken of Cadle on September 8, 1989, the day Stafford interviewed Cadle at his Townsend, Tennessee home. Stafford, Charles Moore, and Richard Blaustein, all of CASS, took these photos. Twenty-four 35 mm negatives, which include the 14 images, are also contained in the series. Fifteen of the 38 black and white prints are 5" x 7". ETSU University Relations photographer Jim Sledge took these photos at Cadle's home on October 6, 1989, the day when Cadle relinquished his collection to the archives. Depicted in these photos are Cadle, Stafford, Blaustein and archives head Norma Myers. The prints are arranged chronologically, with the September 8th prints and negatives placed first, and the October 6th prints placed second. Each print has been numbered and duplicate images have been placed in envelopes.

Subgroup II, FIELD RECORDINGS, 1935-c. 1955, Discs BC:1-580, contained in Boxes 7-15.

Most of the field recordings were made by Mary Elizabeth Barnicle and Tillman Cadle. Some recordings, notably those in Series A, were made by Barnicle, folklorist and novelist Zora Neale Hurston, and folklorist Alan Lomax. Some recordings in Series B were made by Barnicle and Lomax. Where it is known who recorded the artist, either through the Library of Congress, Archive of Folk Song Check-List of Recorded Songs in the English Language in the Archive of American Folk Song to July 1940 (Washington, D. C., 1942; hereafter referred to as the LC Checklist) or through disc jacket notations, that information is noted on the detailed list. Where there is no notation as to who recorded the artist, it is assumed that either Barnicle or Cadle, or both of them, recorded the tune in question.

The discs include a variety of music which, nonetheless, can be placed into two broad categories: 1) African-American traditional music; and 2) Anglo-American traditional music. Included within these categories are African-American game songs, blues, work songs, and hymns; and Anglo-American ballads, hymns, and bawdy songs. Also included among the recordings are tall tales, stories, sermons, and ethnic songs.

The recordings are arranged by geographical location of recording sessions. In most instances, this helped preserve the integrity of the original arrangement since artists were recorded at particular sessions, and discs thus produced were kept together. Each series, then, is arranged according to geographical location, with subseries arranged either according to artist or date of recording. The discs in Subgroup II are numbered consecutively by numbers assigned to each disc. Many discs from particular sessions were numbered together, but there were various numbering sequences contained within the whole collection of discs. It was impossible, then, to follow any already existing numbering series.

It is likely that two sets existed of many of the recordings, especially those in Series A and Series B. According to Willie Smyth (Tennessee Folklore Society, Album Notes: TFS 108, The Barnicle Recordings, 1986, p. 5) Lomax deposited a set of the Florida, Georgia, and Bahamas recordings in the Archive of American Folk Song at the Library of Congress, while Barnicle kept another set for her own collection. Smyth also notes that according to the LC Check-List Barnicle donated to the Archive of Folk Song approximately 308 Bahamas titles, 173 Georgia and Florida titles, and 159 Kentucky titles, (p. 1). The 173 Georgia and Florida titles include discs from subsequent field trips, as there are only 76 discs from the 1935 trip. Almost all of the recordings in Series A and B are listed in the LC Checklist. In addition, a number of other recordings throughout Subgroup II also appeared in the LC list. This indicates that there were two copies of these recordings. Where appropriate the LC number is noted after each title. Where there are discrepancies in song title, artist's name, or date recorded, these discrepancies are so noted. Such discrepancies indicate the possibility that the LC disc and the Barnicle-Cadle disc are not the same recording.

Subgroup II is divided into series and subseries as follows: Series A, Georgia and Florida Recordings, Discs BC:1-24, 1935, Box 7; Series B, Bahamas Recordings, Discs BC:25-88b, 1935, Box 7-8; and Series C, New York Recordings, Discs BC:89-234, 1935, 1940, 1948-49 and undated, Box 8-10. Series D, Pineville, Kentucky Recordings, Discs BC:234-320 is divided into three subseries: Subseries 1, 1938 Recordings, Discs BC:235-288, Box 10; Subseries 2, 1939 Recordings, Discs BC:289-315, Box 11; and Subseries 3, 1950 and Undated Recordings, Discs BC:316-320, Box 11. Series E, includes Other Kentucky Recordings, Discs BC:321-393, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1942, 1946, 1948-50 and undated, Boxes 11-12. Series F, Tennessee and Virginia Recordings, 1939-40, 1945, 1947-48; and Series G, Locales Unknown, 1938-42 and undated. Series F includes Tennessee and Virginia Recordings, Discs BC:394-473, 1939-40, 1945, and 1947-48, Boxes 12-13. Series G consists of recordings from Locales Unknown, Discs BC:474-564, 1938-42 and undated, Boxes 13-14.

Top of Series Description

Series A, GEORGIA AND FLORIDA RECORDINGS, Discs BC:1-24, 1935, Box 7.

This series contains African-American children's songs, game songs, hymns and spirituals, and work songs. The songs were recorded by Mary Elizabeth Barnicle, folklorist and novelist Zora Neale Hurston, and folklorist Alan Lomax on their 1935 field trip through Georgia and Florida. The Georgia recordings were made in a small black community near Fort Frederica, St. Simon's Island, Georgia. Since the jackets of these discs noted Frederica as the locale that name has been retained on the detailed list. The Florida recordings were made in Hurston's home town of Eatonville, an all-black community which was adjacent to the all-white town of Maitland, four miles northeast of Orlando (now part of metropolitan Orlando). Eatonville no longer exists, but if it did it would be located on the road that connects Highway 17 and Interstate 4.

The number of recordings made on the Georgia-Florida expedition and deposited in the Archive of American Folk Song (AAFS) was 76. According to Hurston's biographer Robert Hemenway, and according to the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, discs numbered AFS 309-385 comprise the total number of Georgia and Florida recordings made by Lomax, Barnicle, and Hurston, and deposited in the AAFS.

The persons responsible for recording the songs are noted, as is the Archive of American Folk-Song (AAFS) number.

Series B, BAHAMAS RECORDINGS, Discs BC:25-88b, 1935, Boxes 7-8.

Contained in this series are Bahamian folk songs, game songs, children's songs and dance music recorded by Barnicle and Lomax in 1935. Barnicle and Lomax traveled to the Bahamas in 1935 at the conclusion of their Florida-Georgia trip. There the two continued to make field recordings. The entire Bahamas series consists of almost 150 discs (AFS 386-535). According to Smyth, Lomax deposited his set in the AAFS, while Barnicle kept her set. Presumably, Barnicle's set is that contained in this collection. The detailed list notes who recorded the song, as well as the AAFS number.

Various types of African-American Bahamian music are included in Series B. Among these are ring plays, rushing songs, hymns, spirituals, working songs, Haitian voo-doo songs, and different types of dance music. A number of the artists are anonymous. Those identified artists include the Andros Island Men, Pappi, the Nassau String Quartet, and Ellen Remings.
