Description: NA0523 Rob Golding and Earl Bonness, interviewed by Marshall Dodge, 1965, Perry, Maine. Accession includes a rough typed transcript of the tapes prepared by Joyce Benson in 1969; also a rough handwritten contents listing. Golding and Bonness give humorous stories and anecdotes of Downeast about local people and events, and these anecdotes reflect the quintessential Downeast character and type of humor later made famous by Marshall Dodge in his stories of “Bert and I” and may suggest the origins of the types of characters and humor Dodge used in his “Bert and I” records.
