Stetson Kennedy was born in Jacksonville, Florida in 1916. As a teenager he began collecting Cracker and African-American folksay material while he was collecting 'dollar down and dollar a week' accounts for his father, a furniture merchant. He left the University of Florida in 1937 to join the WPA Florida Writers' Project, and at the age of 21, put in charge of folklore, oral history, and ethnic studies. Slowly, he became one of the pioneer folklore collectors during the first half of the twentieth century.
