For Friends of the George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida FALL 2013 Papers of writer and activist Stetson Kennedy join those of his contemporaries, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Zora Neale Hurston(Left to Right) Marvin Dunn, Lucy Anne Hurston and Peggy Bulger comment on a question posed by moderator Ben Brotemarkle during the panel Stetson Kennedy, Re-imagining Justice in the 21st Century, marking the opening of the Stetson Kennedy Papers at UF. (Photo by Clayton Photography) By James Cusick Curator, PK Yonge Library of Florida Historye Papers of Stetson Kennedy, rebrand activist, writer and folklorist of the American South, were ocially dedicated at the University of Florida (UF) on October 22. Kennedy, best known for exposs on the Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s, attended the University of Florida in 1935 but chaed at the demands of college classes. Instead, he joined the ranks of the New Deal-era Federal Writers Project, then preparing the American Guide Series on Florida, where he worked with Zora Neale Hurston and Alan Lomax, learned the art of oral history, and began to speak out against the Jim Crow laws of racial discrimination. I n a life that spanned almost a century, and a writing career of some 80 years, Stetson Kennedy (1916-2011) epitomized the energy and drive of American social activism. Now his thoughts and works are preserved at UF, the school he always regarded as his alma mater, joining those of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Zora Neale Hurston as part of the literary manuscripts of Special Collections, George A. Smathers Libraries. Besides his association with Hurston and Rawlings, Kennedys writings and advocacy for social justice brought him into contact with Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Richard Wright, Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Studs Terkel, Erskine Caldwell and Florida freedom ghters Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore. Many of his books have become classics, including Palmetto Country (1942), Southern Exposure (1946) and The Klan Unmasked (1954). But it was only in the 1990s, when he was in his seventies, that accolades started to roll in, with more than 35 honors.

2 Chapter One FALL 2013Stetson Kennedy Papers (Cont.)inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2005. The University of Florida commemorated the opening of the Stetson Kennedy Papers with an open house highlighting his work, a showing of Soul of a People telling the story of the Federal Writers Project and a symposium, Stetson Kennedy: ReImagining Justice in the 21st Century. Nothing demonstrated the impact of his work better than the symposium, which opened with acclaimed Delta Blues musician Willie Green on harmonica, and Bill Foote on guitar, to a packed auditorium of about 180 at Pugh Hall. Paul Ortz, executive director of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, and UF First Lady Chris Machen provided highlights of Kennedys career, including his close friendship with folk singer Woody Guthrie and Kennedys write in candidacy run for office against Senator George Smathers in 1950. Still, it was the present, not the past, that took center place in a lively panel discussion, moderated by Ben Brotemarkle, executive director of the Florida Historical Society, and featuring retired FIU professor Marvin Dunn, former director of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress Peggy Bulger and Lucy Anne Hurston, author and niece of literary luminary Zora Neale Hurston. In a program that ranged in theme from the need to vote to the basis of social compassion, all three noted scholars addressed issues close to Kennedys heart. The auditorium fell silent when Marvin Dunn, recounting the lynching of Claude Neal in Jackson County, Florida, in 1934, proceeded to name the men responsible, saying their names had remained secret for too long. But he quickly added that it is the present, not the past, that should concern us. Those people who did that are dead, he said No one alive today is responsible for those actions. Whites need to lose their guilt and blacks their resentments over what people in the past did so that we can confront what happened Because Stetson Kennedys career should make us mindful not to think that we are now too civilized, too generous, too kind, to do evil. We are just this far away squeezing his thumb and forefinger paper thin from choosing to make some other group outcast and a target of our outrage. Shortly after, in answer to a question about the legacy of Kennedys generation of activists, Lucy Anne Hurston told the audience, Things dont start over each generation. We stand on the shoulders of giants. But if you are under 25 years old, you need to be very afraid. You do not know how to fight. You havent had to fight. People before you did your fighting for you. All the gains of the past are fragile, she said, and there are groups who would like to abridge them or curtail them, if complacency gives them the chance to try. You need to learn to fight, she said. Asked the importance of oral history in preserving peoples stories, Peggy Bulger responded that culture, because it is constantly changing, has to be constantly recorded. In 1980, she said, a hundred shrimp boats put out from Fernandina every day. Last year there were eight. Thats an example of a traditional way of life now disappearing, she said. But new traditions and new folk cultures are also constantly being made. Sandra Parks, Kennedys widow, concluded the evening with thanks to UF President Bernie Machen and First Lady Chris Machen for their enthusiasm in bringing Kennedys collection full circle to UF. But her special heros, she said, were Dean Judith Russell of the University of Florida library system and Dean William A. Garrison of the University of South Florida (USF) library system. USF, she noted, took in some 52 boxes of Kennedys materials in 1996, at a time when the materials were bursting the seams of his rustic house at Beluthahatchee, Florida, often at the mercy of Floridas climate. Im not sure those materials would have survived without USF, she said. Now she is doubly grateful, as Deans Russell and Garrison agreed to transfer the USF material to UF. It will be united with the 70 to 90 boxes of materials donated through the Stetson Kennedy Trust, to become the major encompassing collection of Kennedys works, published and unpublished, as well as of a wealth of audio and audiovisual recordings. I am profoundly grateful to Deans Garrison and Russell for making this possible, said Parks. Further enhancing the collection at UF are microfilm copies of papers held at Georgia State University, the Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the University of North Carolina. Across town, the Civic Media Center holds Kennedys personal library. Events were co-sponsored by the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History/Stewards of Florida History at the George A. Smathers Libraries, the UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere Rothman Endowment and the Civic Media Center. There are so many intellectual and documentary connections that can be made between Stetson Kennedy and our existing collections. The value of the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Papers and the Zora Neale Hurston Papers increase exponentially with the addition of the Kennedy material.

FALL 2013 Chapter One 9rough its Retrospective Dissertation Scanning Program, the University of Florida (UF) is building a digital collection of approximately 12,000 dissertations written by PhD graduates from 1934-2006. In 2007 UF began requiring doctoral degree candidates to submit dissertations in a digital format, while those from earlier years were primarily available in print or microlm. e current online submission process ensures that research is made available in a timely manner to as wide an audience as possible, and this project will make a more comprehensive set of dissertations available online. e Digital Services Department of the George A. Smathers Libraries is contacting authors and copyright holders of UF dissertations from 19342006 with e-mails, letters and postcards, to inform them of the project. ere is no cost to authors and copyright holders and copyright remains with them. e goal is to enable access to the past scholarship by making all UF dissertations available electronically in the Institutional Repository at UF (IR@ UF) at Dissertations are commonly used as the basis for research and are popular requests from other libraries and their patrons. We are pleased to bring this important scholarly material to researchers, said Dean of University Libraries Judith Russell. e doctoral dissertations at the University of Florida represent a large amount of unique intellectual content and online access to the dissertations that were previously only available in print or microlm means this research can now be viewed and read by scholars and students around the world. Of the 12,078 dissertations submitted between 1934 and 2006, 5,220 have been digitized, with more being added every day. Aer the print dissertations have been digitized, a physical copy will remain in the University Archives. To view the dissertations already online or search for a persons name go to http:// Dissertations by authors who cannot be located through a search process will be digitized and remain available electronically unless the author or copyright holder chooses to opt out of public access to the work. Electronic versions will be retained for preservation purposes even if they are removed from public access. Updates on dissertation status within the project are also available. Authors can nd dissertation status or opt out of public access at mydissertation or contact Christy Shorey directly at UFdissertations@ or (352) 273-2831.1934-2006 UF dissertations being digitized for open access Wing of National Archives funds digitizing 19th century diaries and lettersBy James Cusick Curator, PK Yonge Library of Florida HistoryA grant award from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) will allow 38,000 pages (18,000 are online so far) of original 19th-century memoirs, diaries and letters housed in Special Collections to go online over the next 18 months.
