Free Oral History and Preservation Workshop

The Vanishing Treasures Program is sponsoring a free workshop on oral history and historic preservation entitled “If These Walls Could Talk: Successfully Creating and Using Oral Histories in the Preservation of Traditional Resources.”

The best preservation treatments are founded in strong historical research and documentation. One often overlooked-- and invaluable--source of historical background are oral history interviews.

In this course, participants will learn how to effectively plan and implement all phases of an oral history project and will explore how interviews can in turn help inform preservation treatment plans. Using case studies, classroom presentations and a practicum, participants will gain the tools they need to gather reliable historic information through the use of the spoken word.

Dates: Tuesday, July 12 - Thursday, July 14, 2016
Western Center for Historic Preservation, Grand Teton National Park, Moose, WY

LuAnn Jones, NPS Historian Brenna Lissoway, NPS Archivist
