Hearing History: Washington Archives Month 2013

Welcome to Washington Archives Month 2013!

Every year Washington State’s Archives celebrate the month of October by choosing a topic to highlight in museum collections across the state. This year the theme has been chosen as oral histories – and we couldn’t be more excited!

Issaquah History Museums has a substantial amount of oral histories in its collections. We have more than 50, the earliest dating from 1958 and the most recent from 2011. There are over 20 transcripts available through our website and on our digital collections website.

In honor of Washington Archives Month, we’ll be highlighting a few of our oral histories here on our blog, Facebook, and Pinterest. If you want to get a jump start on checking out our oral histories, you can visit our Oral Histories section of our website here.

Thanks to generous grants from 4Culture for making these oral histories, and all of our digital collections, available to the public. Thank you to members, donors, and volunteers as well.
