Abstract / Summary
The Acadian Handicraft Project existed from 1942 until 1962. It grew out of an earlier effort by the General Education Board to support French language and culture in Louisiana. In 1942, Louisiana State University's General Extension Program picked up the project. Louise Olivier (d. 1962), served as the Extension Program's field representative and purchased crafts, mostly textiles, from Acadian women and marketed them throughout the state. Interviewers Pam Rabalais of LSU's School of Human Ecology and Yvonne Olivier conducted these interviews with women who participated in the project for the Southeastern Crafts Revival at the University of South Carolina's McKissick Museum. The original tapes and transcripts are housed at the McKissick.
