Folklife Collection - Local Legends: Vestigial Community

by Salisbury University Students (1971 – 1972)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

In a series of interviews of local Eastern Shore residents during 1971 to 1972, former Salisbury University students and professors collected folk legends. For this collection, these interviews focus on the stories of people called Eckies, on Hooper's Island you received this name if you were a person of mixed race or a descendent of one. The stories tell of how the Eckies created their own private community since others chose to not interact with them. Most interviews include personal descriptions of the interviewer and informant, and the story.
