Abstract:

The collection consists of papers, photographs, slides, sound recordings, videotapes, films, and other materials documenting Ferris's life and work. Professional papers relate to his teaching career at Jackson State University, Yale University, the University of Mississippi, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and to his activities at the Center for Southern Folklore, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the Center for the Study of Southern Culture, the Center for the Study of the American South, and as chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Personal papers include student materials, family correspondence, and other papers from the 1940s to 2002. Papers, images, and recordings document life in Mississippi and the Mississippi Delta; folk, blues, gospel, fife and drum corps music, and other musical types; folk and music festivals; folk arts, culture, and humor; Highway 61; the Ku Klux Klan; prisons, especially Parchman Farm (Mississippi State Penitentiary); auctioneers; and other topics. Films and videotapes include footage of Ferris's documentaries. Individuals important in the collection include writers, artists, musicians, political figures, and others.

The Addition of 2012 contains papers, photographs, audio recordings, moving images, digital files, and artifacts relating to William Ferris's life and work, 1949-2011. There are materials relating to Ferris's book "Give My Poor Heart Ease: Voices of the Mississippi Delta Blues" (2009) and research and notes related to Ferris's book project on southern voices.

King, students and advisees, and professional colleagues from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and other universities; subject files relating to his research, projects, and events; notes, letters, holiday cards, and other papers sent to Ferris; and published items collected by Ferris. The Addition also contains black-and-white photographic prints of images taken by Ferris in the 1960s and 1970s primarily depicting African Americans and whites in Mississippi including images of musicians Louis Dotson, James "Son" Thomas, and others; a significant number of snapshots taken by Ferris, 2000-2011, of musical events, gatherings, and travel; slides depicting various people and scenes important to Ferris's research; digital family and travel photographs; digital photographs given to William Ferris from friends and associates; and photocopies of the contact prints from photographs taken by Ferris in the 1960s and 1970s.
