Betty Belanus was interviewed by Eduardo Contreras on July 6, 1996. Belanus was born in New Jersey in 1955 and is a folklorist at the Center for Folklife Programs and Cultural Studies (CFPCS). Belanus began her association with the Smithsonian in 1986 when she was a presenter for the program on Tennessee at the Festival of American Folklife (FAF). She was then hired full time in May 1987 to begin working on the Massachusetts portion of the 1988 Festival. Belanus continued to work for the CFPCS on contract, curating the Family Farm exhibit at the 1991 FAF, serving as the stage manager for the White House Workers program in 1992, and working with Olivia Cadaval on the Borderlands program at the 1993 FAF. In October 1994, she and Marjorie Hunt were hired under a job share agreement in which each works 20 hours a week. Most recently, Belanus, Hunt, and Emily Botein curated the Working at the Smithsonian exhibit at the 1996 FAF. This interview discusses how Belanus got involved with the Tennessee program of the 1986 FAF, the work she did as she curated the Massachusetts program for the 1988 FAF, how her career progressed, the projects she worked on between 1988 and 1994, her favorite Festival stories, and her accomplishments in connecting the CFPCS with the educational initiative of the Smithsonian and creating several educational outreach kits. The interview also covers the differences between other museums and the Smithsonian, the challenges of her job, and how the Smithsonian and the CFPCS have changed.
