Norman Studer
Biographical Sketch

Back to table of contents

Norman Studer, educator, folklorist, author, was born in Whitehouse, Ohio on September 7, 1902. In 1917, Studer left home, enlisted in the United States Navy, and served as a quartermaster aboard the U.S.S. Edgecomb. Upon the conclusion of World War I, Studer returned home to complete his high school education, whereupon he matriculated to Oberlin College. Studer spent three years at Oberlin, leaving after his third year to become an editor of The New Student – a newspaper for "the voice of the student revolt movement" in New York City. Studer eventually returned to college completing his A.B. in History at Columbia University in 1929. He continued his studies at Columbia, earning an A.M in Political Science in 1931.

In 1931 Studer embarked upon a forty-year career in education, commencing with a teaching assignment at Erie Day School in Erie, Pennsylvania. Following two years at Erie, Studer taught at the Little Red School House, a cooperative, experimental school founded by Elisabeth Irwin, located in lower Manhattan. Studer was attracted to the experimental and progressive curriculum cultivated by Irwin and the other educators at the Little Red School House. In 1941, Studer chaired the committee founding the Elisabeth Irwin High School, and worked there as both teacher and administrator for the following ten years.

Studer's association with Elisabeth Irwin proved influential in shaping his pedagogical vision, both in the classroom and beyond. While at the Little Red School House, Studer developed and taught a unit entitled "Slavery and the Negro Problem" that led to a life long interest in ethnic studies and "intergroup relations," the equivalent of the current study of multiculturalism or multicultural studies. It was also during his tenure at the Little Red School House that Studer realized the importance of field trips as an integral component of the curricular experience. Through field trips, Studer discovered that he could inform his students, in a more immediate and kinesthetic sense, of the rich history and heritage that lay just beyond the school walls. As a teacher, Studer also participated in "June Camp" – a one- month field trip to Camp Quannacut, near Pine Bush, New York – in which students lived in a democratic community within a rural environment. Studer ran June Camp from 1936-1940.

In 1938, Studer joined the staff of Camp Hilltop - a progressive educational summer camp - initially as head counselor then as director of education. Camp Hilltop closed in 1940; however, Studer, along with Camp Hilltop's former director, Rose Sydney, and three others, Regine Dicker (Ferber), Sara Abelson (Abramson), and Hannah Studer, founded Camp Woodland in Phoenicia, New York, located in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. Camp Woodland strove to create a democratic environment where children of varying religions, socioeconomic, and ethnic backgrounds from the New York City area could steep in the rich ecology of the Catskill region for two months each summer.

The curriculum and experience of Camp Woodland were deeply rooted in the folklore and folk culture of the Catskill Mountains. Norman Cazden and Herb Haufrecht were Camp Woodland's music directors. Studer attempted to incorporate the endemic culture, history, and rituals of the Catskill region into the Camp Woodland curriculum by cultivating a symbiotic relationship with the camp and the Catskill denizens. He would often take carloads of campers to visit the local residents, then invite the residents back to camp to share their regional folklore and music, as well as teach the traditional crafts of the region. The two-month summer camp concluded each season with a folk festival that brought together the campers and Catskill residents for a weekend of music, drama, dancing, story telling, and song. The folk festivals were the high point of each season and became very popular with the campers, folk musicians, and local residents. The annual event attracted luminary musicians such as Pete Seeger, Bessie Jones, Norman Cazden, and Herb Haufrecht as well as local talent that included Grant Rogers, Harry Siemsen, George Edwards, Ernie Sagan, George Van Kleeck, and Etson Van Wagner. Studer captured the folk festivals on tape, and in many instances the recordings remain the only known extant audio recordings of these local musicians playing and singing the ballads and songs of the Catskills. These recordings were later compiled, transcribed, and edited by Cazden, Haufrecht, and Studer in a book entitled Folk Songs of the Catskills. Studer was director of Camp Woodland from its inception (1940) to dissolution (1961).

In 1951, Studer became director of the Downtown Community School located at 235 East 11th Street in lower Manhattan. The Downtown Community School was a progressive, cooperative, racially integrated school, founded in 1944 by a group of parents and educators. As director, Studer attempted to create a curriculum that was aimed at promoting a healthy concept of self and a deeper understanding of society. Studer brought many of the ideas and philosophies of the Little Red School House, Elisabeth Irwin High School, and Camp Woodland to the Downtown Community School, particularly his interest in ethnic studies, folklore, field trips, and racial integration. Throughout his career as an educator and administrator, Studer championed cultural and racial integration in the educational environment. In 1956, the annual Conference on Intergroup Education – a forum for educators, parents, and community members designed to encourage inter-racial and inter-cultural education – was founded. Studer's approach to the education of children was always direct, active, and personal. He exemplified this by continuing to sponsor and steward annual field trips for the seventh and eighth grade students throughout his tenure at the Downtown Community School. Studer remained director of the Downtown Community School until 1970. The school closed in 1971.

Studer was the author of numerous articles, two books, and one poem, nearly all of which dealt with the themes of folklore and education. Folk Songs of the Catskills, edited by Norman Cazden, Herbert Haufrecht, and Norman Studer, published by SUNY Albany Press in 1982, "is an annotated volume of traditional ballads and songs collected under the auspices of Camp Woodland." Cazden, Haufrecht and Studer assiduously compiled, recorded, transcribed, and edited the songs and music over the course of forty-two years. Both Cazden and Studer passed away prior to its publication, leaving Haufrecht to see the project through to completion. The folk culture of the Catskill region was predominately transmitted orally; therefore, Folk Songs of the Catskills has to be considered the definitive treatment of Catskill folk music, as many of the informants have passed away. Also published posthumously, A Catskill Bear Hunter: Mike Todd's Story by Purple Mountain Press in 1988, is Studer's "folk biography" of Mike Todd, a Catskill native and good friend of Studer's, who spent numerous summers at Camp Woodland; he also serves as the subject of Studer's poem "All the Homespun Days," written in his memory.

Norman Studer died October 27, 1978.

Norman Studer
Scope and Content Note

Back to table of contents

The Norman Studer Papers document his career as both an educator and ardent Catskill folklorist. The papers are particularly robust in documenting his administrative activities as director of both the Downtown Community School (1951-1970) and Camp Woodland (1940-1962). The strength of the collections lies in the discrete and manifold formats documenting two essential themes: progressive education and the folklore and culture of the Catskills. Materials include unpublished manuscripts, manuscript drafts, typescripts, reprints, notes, correspondence, diaries, student writings, litigation, news clippings, audio recordings, 16mm films, and photographs. The papers contain an extraordinary collection of reel-to-reel audiotapes capturing local Catskill informant interviews, a wide array of regional and national folk singers performing, folk festivals, and educational activities at the Downtown Community School. The audio recordings list was provided by the donor and some errors have been discovered. All requests to listen to audio recordings must be made to Department staff in advance of a researcher's visit to the Department. There is also a substantial collection of photographs documenting the people and activities at the Downtown Community School and Camp Woodland. There are a number of photographs of notable local and national folk personalities, including George Edwards, Herbert Haufrecht, Norman Cazden, Grant Rogers, Harry Siemsen, and Pete Seeger. A small number of images are available for viewing online from the University at Albany Libraries' Digital Collections database.

The collection contains nearly all of Studer's published and unpublished writings. Studer's writings generally address the issues of regional folklore and how to assimilate folklore into curriculum – "Community Life" and "Woodland Story," two unpublished manuscripts exemplify this synthesis. There are a number of diaries and travelogues in the writing series; however, they are generally ephemeral and unrevealing as a result of their terse and sporadic nature.

Although there is sparse documentation of Studer's teaching activities in the collection, there are a few significant examples, such as the material related to African American studies at the Little Red School House and the Downtown Community School. It appears that Studer was an early advocate of incorporating African American studies into his curriculum. As director of the Downtown Community School and Camp Woodland, he sought to cultivate and nurture equal opportunity enrollment. In addition to the African American studies material, there is substantial material related to the field trip units Studer developed. It must be noted that there are no student records in either the Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School or the Downtown Community School materials. Additional information about the Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School is available from the institution's web site: http://www.lrei.org/.

Intriguing ephemeral items include a duplicate typescript letter from Studer to Langston Hughes thanking him for the poems he included in his last letter. The incipient and penultimate pieces of correspondence and the poems appear to have been removed from the collection. Studer appears to have also corresponded with Aaron Copland, as there is a duplicate typescript letter asking Copland if he would be interested in participating in a folklore conference. The Copland and Hughes correspondence can both be found in the Subject Files series within the folder entitled "Folklore Conference."


Norman Studer
Series Descriptions

Back to table of contents

Series 1: Biographical, 1932-2001, Undated, .8 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

The Biographical Series contains Norman Studer's curriculum vitas, a partial autobiography, a brief biography, memorial tributes, family photographs, family records, and correspondence. The correspondence has been identified by correspondent's name only when the volume or significance warrants such separation; however, the bulk of the correspondence is arranged chronologically. Notable correspondents include Pete and Toshi Seeger and David Dunaway, Seeger's biographer as well as a former Camp Woodland camper.

This series also includes materials related to Norman Studer's daughter Joan Studer Levine, including her writings, graduation commencement program and relevant correspondence from the 1980s through 2001. Levine also collected records related to Studer family reunions and genealogy.

Series 2: Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School, 1934-1954, .2 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

Studer was an educator and administrator at the Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School from 1940-1951. There is a relatively insignificant amount of material related to Studer's teaching activities, with the exception of a folder entitled "Slavery and the Negro Problem." The folder contains notes, bibliographies, and analyses of an educational unit Studer developed addressing the historical and cultural position of the "American Negro" in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The material evidences Studer's early interest in the concept of American democracy and interracial relations, as well as his collaborative approach to the subject, which includes portions of student interviews revealing their attitudes toward African Americans, the Civil War, and slavery. Also of interest is the folder entitled "Our Voice," containing several copies of a student run publication containing articles, prose, drama, poetry, and opinions of students at the Little Red School House

Series 3: Downtown Community School, 1944-1973, 3.6 cubic ft., Arranged by Subseries.

Subseries 1: Administrative, 1948-1973, 2.0 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

The Administrative subseries documents Studer's activities as the Director of the Downtown Community School. Included are Board of Trustee meeting minutes, a copy of the Downtown Community School By-laws, core curriculum notes, teacher's guides, admissions policy reports and material related to interracial and intercultural education. There are a number of folders related to the abrupt resignation of the long-time director of the Downtown Community School Nursery School, Irene Neurath, at the conclusion of the 1967-1968 academic year. The resignations shocked the administration, Board of Trustees, as well as the parents. Two years later (April 1970), the Board of Trustees asked for Studer's resignation. One year later, the school closed.

Subseries 2: Activities, 1944-1971, 1.6 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

The Activities Subseries contains material produced by or involving the students of the Downtown Community School, as well as Norman Studer, beyond his administrative responsibilities. Materials include notes from field trips, graduation dramas, student writings, and Downtown Community School publications, i.e. the Downtowner and Scribbler. The Downtowner was an internally published periodical containing a calendar of events, an editorial from Norman Studer, announcements, and student writings. The Scribbler differed in that it was solely composed of student writings from each grade level. The Subseries is particularly strong in its representation of field trips sponsored by Studer, many of which were taken to the Catskill Mountains. The folders often include itineraries, curricular guides, local history, maps, as well as student reflections and drawings. Many of the Downtown Community School graduation dramas were predicated on the field trip experiences. Also of interest are a number of folders containing student writings and drawings.

Series 4: Camp Woodland, 1937-1974, 1.2 cubic ft., Arranged by subseries.

Subseries 1: Administrative, 1937-1963, .6 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

The Administrative subseries documents the functions of the director, Board of Trustees, and staff of Camp Woodland as they relate to the operation of the Camp. Materials include annual reports (1943-1959), meeting minutes (1954-1963), correspondence, litigation, counselor in training handbooks, as well as documents related to an investigation (1954-1958) of Norman Studer and Camp Woodland for possible subversive activities and ties to the Communist Party. The annual reports provide excellent fiscal summary data related to the operation of the Camp, including, but not limited to, tuition costs, expenditures, operating costs, tax liability, fixed assets and accumulated depreciation, and accumulated funds. These reports were prepared by certified public accountants and record the fiscal state of Camp Woodland in great detail. The folder entitled "Board of Director's Dispute" documents an effort by three of Camp Woodland's founders and Board members - Mrs. Ferber, Mrs. Sydney, and Mrs. Abramson - to separate themselves, legally and financially, from the Camp. It is unclear what precipitated the dispute, but ultimately, it appears there were philosophical differences as well as divergent financial interests. The folder entitled "Camp Woodland, Correspondence, 1942-1974" contains a letter from Pete and Toshi Seeger supporting the Studers.

Of particular interest are the folders pertaining to the Larkin Committee's investigation of Norman Studer and Camp Woodland as having sympathetic ties with the Communist Party. During the early months of 1955, the Joint Legislative Committee on Charitable and Philanthropic Agencies and Organizations of New York investigated the possibility of subversive training and indoctrination of children in Communist-established summer camps. In the report, Studer was specifically "identified as a long-time member of the Communist Party." Studer was also accused of having "purposely hired Communists as his assistants at the camp." One of the possible assistants being alluded to may have been Pete Seeger, who is also identified in this report as being "Pro-Communist." The full report is located in the folder entitled "Investigation of Subversive Activities, 1954-1958." Studer testified before the Committee; however, formal charges were never filed against Studer nor Camp Woodland.

Subseries 2: Activities, 1940-1962, .6 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

The Activities subseries consists primarily of publications, event announcements, writings, and art produced by campers, or counselors of Camp Woodland. Notable materials include copies of the Camp magazine, Neighbors; programs, announcements, news clippings, and correspondence related to the Folk Festival of the Catskills; ephemeral publications; and various creative writings.

Neighbors was originally published as the Folk Festival of the Catskills program, but eventually evolved into a separate publication in 1944 and continued until 1962. It evolved into an annual magazine devoted to recording the explorations and discoveries of campers and camp counselors each summer. The Studer Papers do not have a complete run of Neighbors, as it is missing the years 1958, 1959, and 1961. Noted musician and composer, Norman Cazden, and occasionally Herbert Haufrecht, supervised the folk music contributions of Neighbors; as a result, it became a rich source of sheet music and lyrics for regional foldksongs.

Camp Woodland culminated each year with the annual Folk Festival of the Catskills. Studer invited many of the local fiddlers, musicians, dance callers, and ballad singers to join the campers in a folk festival performance for the counselors, community members, and parents. Studer organized the folk festival with the manifold purpose of reviving the Catskill heritage of folk music and dance. Pete Seeger periodically performed at the Folk Festival of the Catskills, particularly during the early years (1942-1952). Many of the festivals were recorded by Studer, and are located in Series 6: Audio Recordings and Series 7: Films.

Series 5: Photographs, circa 1920-1972, 3.0 cubic ft., Arranged by subseries.

A small number of images are available for viewing online from the University at Albany Libraries' Digital Collections database. The photographs provide examples of a range of photo processing techniques used in the twentieth century. For example, a number of oversize images from the Camp Woodland subseries are examples of the photogravure process. Photogravure is a process for reproducing a photograph in large editions, which was most likely used by an experienced photographer for displaying Camp Woodland images in the mid-twentieth century.

Subseries 1: Downtown Community School, circa 1952-1972, 1.0 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

The photographs in the Downtown Community School subseries are generally undated and document field trip experiences and "core curriculum" activities, e.g. hikes, dancing, singing, crafts, etc. Unfortunately, very few of the images are annotated.

Subseries 2: Camp Woodland, circa 1940-1961, 1.6 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

The Camp Woodland photographs subseries documentss the activities of the campers, the folk festivals, and many of the Catskill indigenes, including Dick and George Edwards, Harry Robinson, Grant Rogers, Ernie Sagan, Harry Siemsen, Orson Slack, George Van Kleeck, Etson Van Wagner, and Marvin Yale. There are a number of photographs of Norman Cazden and Herbert Haufrecht, both of whom served as musical directors for the camp, photographs of Norman Studer, as well as photographs of Pete Seeger playing his banjo.

Subseries 3: Unidentified, circa 1920-1940, .4 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by subject.

This subseries contains photographs with very little or no annotation. Photographs for which it is unclear if they were taken as part of Camp Woodland or Downtown Community School activities are included here. It is fair to speculate that some of the photographs may be of Camp Hilltop or field trips Studer chaperoned while teaching at the Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School. There are also several portraits of unidentified people in this subseries.

Series 6: Audio Recordings, 1947-1978, 212 audiotapes, Arranged by subseries.

A preliminary incomplete list of audio recordings is available based on information provided by the donor. Some errors have been discovered in the list presently available. A complete list will be made available as the recordings are reformatted and cataloged. Preservation concerns may limit researchers' access to this series at the present time. All requests to listen to audio recordings must be made to Department staff in advance of a researcher's visit to the Department.

A small number of audio recordings have been reformatted and are available for use by researchers. The reformatted recordings include brief track descriptions in the Box and Folder List.

Subseries 1: Downtown Community School, 1953-1969, 68 audiotapes, Arranged by numeric index.

The Downtown Community School audio recordings document guest speakers, student discussions and readings, school plays, intergroup conferences, lectures, staff meetings, musical performances, school trips, oral histories and other programs. A highlight of the series is a recording of Langston Hughes speaking at an intergroup conference.

Subseries 2: Camp Woodland, 1947-1978, 132 audiotapes, Arranged by numeric index.

The Camp Woodland audio recordings may be one of the more significant components of the collection. While at Camp Woodland, Studer recorded numerous oral histories of many of the indigenous Catskill informants as well as the annual Folk Festival of the Catskills. Studer was acutely aware that he was in a position to capture the ethnographic folk culture, music, and ecology of a fading era. In many instances, the tapes represent the only extant recordings and variations of a number of songs. A highlight of the Camp Woodland recordings are several recordings of Pete Seeger performing at the Folk Festival of the Catskills.

A small number of audio recordings have been reformatted and are available for use by researchers. The reformatted recordings include brief track descriptions in the Box and Folder List.

Series 7: Films, circa 1946-1962, 9 films, Arranged chronologically.

The Film series contains nine 16mm and 8mm films, many of which record activities at Camp Woodland. Also included is a film of the 1951 graduation ceremonies at the Downtown Community School and a copy of the Jules Victor Schwerin film "Indian Summer." Films 1-8 were reformatted and are available for viewing in the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives' research room. All requests to view this series should be made in advance of a researcher's visit to the Department.

Series 8: Writings, 1951-1988, 1.6 cubic ft., Arranged in subseries.

Subseries 1: Writings of, 1951-1978, .8 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by title.

The Writings series contains manuscript and typescript drafts, typescripts, notes, reprints, monographs, and a small amount of correspondence related to Studer's writing projects. Of interest are two typescript drafts of unpublished projects: "Community Life" and " Woodland Story," both of which are reflective pieces examining Studer's life and work at the Downtown Community School and Camp Woodland respectively. Many of the unpublished writings in this series reflect Studer's interest in the folk culture of the Catskills, such as "Action on Dingle Hill," "A Folk Manual," "Forgotten Hero of New York's Slave Railway," "Local Song Making in the Catskills," and "A Quest for American Roots." Also of interest is what appears to be an early draft of Folk Songs of the Catskills entitled "Music of the Catskill" and a final typescript draft of Folk Songs of the Catskills, a collaborative projected compiled and edited by Norman Cazden, Herbert Haufrecht, and Norman Studer.

Subseries 2: Diaries and Travelogues, 1930-1978, .8 cubic ft., Arranged chronologically.

The Diaries and Travelogues subseries consists primarily of travelogues documenting several field trips Studer chaperoned while at the Little Red School House and the Downtown Community School, as well as family vacation trips. The diaries document aspects of Studer's personal landscape, and were kept sporadically.

Series 9: Subject Files, 1817, 1925-1980, .8 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by title.

The Subject Files series is an accumulation of material representing Studer's two primary interests: folklore and progressive education. Materials include notes, reprints, typescripts, news clippings, bound newspapers, journals, and writings of others. Of particular interest is a master's thesis by Marilyn Kimball entitled George Edwards: Catskill Folksinger. There is a typescript copy of Merry Ditties: A collection of delectable songs from various traditional sources and a reprint of Catskill Lockup Songs, both by Norman Cazden. Also located in this series is a copy of Herbert Haufrecht's "Woodland Serenade." There are three bound volumes of The New Student, a student run newspaper published and printed out of New York City during the 1920s and edited by Studer prior to his entering Columbia University. In addition, there is a folder entitled "Folklore Conferences, 1945-1949," which contains notes, correspondence, literature, brochures, and transcriptions of round table discussions. Notable attendees include, Harry Botkin, Louis Jones, Charles Seeger, Herbert Haufrecht, and Bess Lomax. Included in the correspondence are typescript duplicate letters Studer sent to Aaron Copland and Langston Hughes. The correspondence to Langston Hughes is a reply to a letter and poems Hughes had sent to Studer. The bulk dates of the series are 1950-1970.

On the first hot day of summer, an old farmer goes fishing just as he has done for many years on the West Branch of the Delaware River. A young boy, his frequent fishing companion, eagerly takes him to see the first giant bulldozers, which are to begin construction on the Cannonsville Reservoir. In order to provide more water for the cities, the vast project will flood the valley. The old man goes to the general store and walks the length of the valley to talk about his concerns, but most people do not support him. The young people of the valley celebrate at a barn dance. The old man resists eviction with his unloaded flintlock. The next day, he watches as the houses and farms are burned to clear the way.
