The Appalachian photographs of Doris Ulmann by Doris Ulmann( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...These eloquent photographs of our vanishing American peasantry, ridiculed by the middle class as hillbillies, disclose a character that is altogether humbling... To look at the lined, weathered faces of Christopher Lewis, Ella Webster, and Mrs. Bird Patten is to be reminded of the humanity and rooted communal life of these Southern Americans who are counted now simply as bureaucratic statistics in the poverty program. The recovery of Doris Ulmann's portraiture is typical of Jargon's cultural husbandry."[4]

John Jacob Niles( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents a portrait of the adding machine repairman who came to eastern Kentucky in 1909, "heard the songs [his] father sang," and became a much-noted "arranger, expander, collector, recorder, and performer" of traditional Appalachian ballads. Niles played an important part in the national "discovery" of Appalachian folk music. He describes how, during the 1920s and '30s, he and photographer Doris Ulmann travelled the mountain region--she taking pictures of the people and he learning their songs. The film shows Niles in concert, at home, at work arranging his music, and explaining the historical place of balladry in American music"--Appalshop website

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This unsigned photograph, taken by Doris Ulmann in 1933 or 1934, shows a corner in Olive Dame Campbell's bedroom at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Campbell resided in the Farm House, the only pre-existing structure on the school's property. A woven coverlet covers the bed and a second one is folded at the foot. A sedge broom stands in the corner of the hearth with an iron shovel. On the mantle piece are a carved bowl, a carved horse, a carved mule, and a barely visible iron candlestick holder. The wall hanging at the foot of the bed has a mountain scene woven into it. The photograph's verso reads "Mrs. Campbell's home, Brasstown, N.C."
