Scope and Contents: The Documenting Community Traditions Collection consists of course work, student papers, and audio and video recordings of oral history interviews collected by students for the ETSU class “Documenting Community Traditions” (English/APST 5690) taught by Katie Doman. The class focused their research efforts on the Vardy community in Hancock County, Tenn., attempting to document the history and culture of this area. Some of the families in the Vardy community had Melungeon ancestry, and this topic is also a subject of the collection. Less extensive materials relate to research selected students did in community history in Butler, Tenn., Hawkins County, Tenn., Johnson County, Tenn., and Unicoi County, Tenn. Material in the collection primarily covers the period of the course in 2000, though some earlier materials was collected as part of the class research efforts. Materials include oral history interviews, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, miscellaneous publications, photographs, and correspondence.
