HEC Regional Oral Histories

Regional Oral History Project

During the 1980s, we interviewed over 220 local leaders in the areas of Agriculture, Arts, Business, Communication, Education, Government and Politics, Homemaking, Law and Law Enforcement, Medicine, Religion and Service Organizations.   Transcripts after September 2016 are funded by Minnesota Reflections grants - http://reflections.mndigital.org/cdm/
We hope to receive funding to continue transcribing of the histories. Listed below are the areas with the number of histories transcribed and the number waiting to be adopted
