  • Data Set Title: Kevin Barry Perdue Archive of Traditional Culture
  • Description: "The Folklore Archive at the University of Virginia was established when Professor Charles L. Perdue began teaching here in September of 1971. With the assistance of his wife, Nancy J. Martin-Perdue, student papers, books, recordings, and other items were acquisitioned into the Archive. Shortly after the death of their son, Kevin Barry Perdue, on December 3, 1979, money donated by friends and family was given to the Archive to be used as a memorial in his name. Since the beginning of 1980 the Archive has borne the name: The Kevin Barry Perdue Archive of Traditional Music. "Music" was later changed to "Culture" to reflect the broadening interests of the Archive." [Excerpt from website]
