VMH Oral History Training for Volunteers

Veterans’ Memorial Hall (VMH), a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society, is looking for volunteers who would be interested in talking with veterans through the Oral History Program. The Oral History Program collects first-person accounts of military service through in-person recorded interviews with county veterans. These interviews are not just about wartime experiences but will also include the journey up to and after their military service. The interviews are then transcribed and stored within the Albert J. Amatuzio Research Center in Veterans’ Memorial Hall. The interviews will then be available on the Veterans’ Memorial Hall website, www.vets-hall.org

For those who wish to volunteer for this Oral History Program, there will be an interview training session scheduled for August 6, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the Ruth Maney Room at the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), 506 W. Michigan St., Duluth, MN.  Lunch will be provided. Preregistration is required.

For questions or more information, contact Nancy Rubin, Veterans’ Memorial Hall Oral History Program Coordinator, at 218-733-7507 or nancy@thehistorypeople.org.
