Size 39 recordings
Abstract The collection of author J. Lawrence Brasher (1947-) contains 39 field recordings on open-reel audiotape. Most of the recordings are untitled, some are labeled with the first names of individuals, and three are labeled "J.L.B. stories" and dated circa 1950, 1965, and 1967. "J.L.B." likely refers to Methodist minister and Brasher's ancestor, John Lakin Brasher (1868-1961), who is the subject of J. Lawrence Brasher's 1994 book The Sanctified South: John Lakin Brasher and the Holiness Movement, published in 1994. Acquired as part of the Southern Folklife Collection.
