Soundscapes of the Upper Midwest

In 1938 the Library of Congress dispatched Alan Lomax to complete a folklife survey of the Great Lakes region.  He returned almost three months later with a cache of 250 discs and 8 reels of film. These materials documented the incredible range of ethnic diversity and occupational folklife in Michigan.
