    Summary:

    Documentation from New Mexico fieldwork conducted by Carl Fleischhauer, consultant, of the American Folklife Center, in the summers of 1984 and 1985, with folklorist Laurie Beth Kalb, for the Museum of International Folk Art (Santa Fe). In 1984, Kalb documented the art of Hispanic carvers in northern New Mexico; in 1985 she contributed to a joint project of the Museum and the New Mexico Historic Preservation Office (HPO), who had contracted with Boyd Pratt to survey historic architecture in the northeastern quadrant of New Mexico. Fleischhauer, Kalb, and Pratt conducted a short folklife survey in Clayton, Mora, and Mosquero, and other locations in New Mexico. Topics documented in field notes and sound recordings include Hispanic art, folk art and culture; Pop Shaffer's folk art environments in Mountainair; and recordings of a livestock auction in Clayton. Collection includes an extended interview with Joe Cordova of Mosquero Canyon conducted by Laurie Kalb and Boyd Pratt; an interview with Enrique Sanchez, a Cuban American living in Mosquero, interviewed by Laurie Kalb in Spanish; and an extended interview with Trinidad and Marguerito Garcia of Mosquero by Laurie Kalb and Carl Fleischhauer. Photographs were taken in La Messilla, Truchas, Velarde, Dixon, and La Cueva, in Rio Arriba County; Las Vegas, San Miguel County; Mountainair, Torrance County; and Vallecitos, N.M. by Carl Fleischhauer.
