Biographical Note

Folklorist Bess Lomax Hawes (daughter of John Avery Lomax and Bess Bauman-Brown Lomax, and the sister of Alan Lomax) was instrumental in organizing the Smithsonian Institution's 1976 Bicentennial Festival of Traditional Folk Arts on the National Mall in Washinton DC. She was aided in her efforts by public and academic folklorists throughout the United States. In 1977, Hawes was named the first director of the Folk and Traditional Arts Program at the National Endowment of the Arts, where she worked to create state or territorial folk arts programs—working with some of the same folklorists she involved in the Bicentennial Festival in 1976. The goal of the state folk arts programs was to collect and present the folk culture in each U.S. State and territory. The materials housed in this collection reflect the efforts of these programs.
