The Melanie L. Sovine and Sue Smith Collection consists of a Spring 1982 interview with Cleo Green, her daughter Pearlie Ann Price, and her granddaughter Dale Ann Price, all members of the Calvin Primitive Baptist Church. Included are an audiocassette and an edited and annotated transcript of that tape.
Both the cassette and the transcript have been placed in one series.
Method of Acquisition
The cassette audiotape and the edited transcript of "'Been a Long Time Travelin'": Three Primitive Baptist Women," were donated to the Archives of Appalachia on May 31, 1982 by Melanie L. Sovine, Appalachian Center, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky.
Marie Tedesco completed the processing and the collection was opened for research on February 25, 1987.
