Thank you to everyone who came out to History Café last night to share memories about the era of Seattle Rainiers baseball. Oral history interviews with players, managers, and fans contributed greatly to the Dan and David’s research. It was a good reminder that there is so much history stored in the memories of individuals that goes beyond what a standard history textbook could ever tell us.
MOHAI is offering a 2-part Oral History Workshop in April and May as part of our DIY History Series. This is a great resource if you have ever thought about recording those family stories Grandma tells at holiday dinners, or if you want to document the memories of your neighborhood or community group.
The first session (on April 5, 9:30am-12:30pm) covers the basics of oral history interviews, including how they are used and interview techniques. Our second session (on May 3, 9:30am-12:30pm) delves deeper into the technology (microphones, recording devices, etc.) and discuss how to interview people about sensitive topics. These workshops are led by experienced oral historian Shelly Leavens.
The above links take you to the full description of each workshop and registration. We do offer a limited number of need-based scholarships for our DIY History Workshops. Please contact Meris Mullaley ([address removed] ;[masked] ext 165) if you have any questions about this program or would like to apply for the scholarship.
