In Your Own Words: Oral History Project

In Your Own Words: Oral History Project

Share your stories with us! The In Your Own Words: Oral History Project seeks to involve all individuals willing to tell their own stories as well as the community’s history.

This oral history project will focus on specific and relevant historical events - past and present - and gather individual’s stories on life in the Quad Cities.

In our first few sessions, we will focus on gathering oral histories about the experiences and memories of the Mississippi Valley Fair, the Flood of 2019, and the Iowa Caucuses.

To share your story, simply register or show up at the recording sessions. Library staff members will be available to record your oral history. The audio recording will be housed in the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center and will be available for research. If you have photographs and other personal items that document what you will discuss during the interview, please bring them with you!

If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact specialcollections@davenportlibrary.com or call 563-326-7902.
