Monterey Library Oral History Project

What was it like to grow up in Monterey, a small southern Berkshire town with people from a broad range of backgrounds but grounded deeply in agriculture?  Wendy Germain and Mark Makuc set out to answer this and other questions in their oral history project.  MLOHP was the first project we worked with, in 2017.  We help them get their digital collections ready for the archive.

In this photo, Joe Makuc, intern, helps by transcribing interviews.  You can find a description of software he used to help him do the transcriptions (OTranscribe) in our News and Projects.

Find their project – in progress – at University of Massachusetts Special Collections and Archives.  Here is one interview:
