Eleanora Tevis became involved with the Museum of American Folk Art in 1975, when Bruce Johnson was the director. Tevis worked with Johnson on his exhibition American Cat-alogue: The Cat in American Folk Art. After Johnson’s death, Tevis continued to volunteer with the museum, becoming active in the newly established docent program.
Tevis recorded many of the lectures on various folk art topics given to the docents by Bob and Pat Coblentz from 1977-1978. Tevis also recorded many of the guest lecture series from 1977 to early 1980, including lectures given by Robert Bishop.
