Our Guide to Oral Histories is Published!

November 1, 2016

The Archive Project has created a manual to help introduce the field of historic preservation to the value of conducting oral history projects, and to provide a few key tools to get started. Our goal is to inspire new initiatives in locations across the country that will document the stories of preservationists. Toward that end, this manual will cover recommended resources, lessons learned from our own experience with oral history work, and important steps in project planning. Thank you to the Arthur F. & Alice E. Adams Charitable Foundation for their support in this endeavor.
