Yosemite Launches Oral History Project
Yosemite National Park has launched a multi-year oral history project to capture the stories of people who have helped shape, and whose lives have been shaped by, one of the nation’s most iconic national parks. The goal of the project is to enhance and enrich the historical understanding of Yosemite National Park with information that could not otherwise be found in the documentary record and to create a high-quality audio-visual oral history collection for use by researchers and future interpretive functions such as museum exhibits, programs, and podcasts.
While initial interviews for the project will focus on former and current National Park Service (NPS) employees, the scope of the project will also include concession employees, spouses and children of employees, long-time park residents, and members of neighboring communities – in other words, those individuals who have had a significant, and often long-term, connection to the park. The project will explore such themes as work, technological change, evolution of park management, environmental change, and the development of community life in the park.
Participants are being sought for the recorded sessions to document Yosemite area history currently titled “I Remember Yosemite.”
