In 2006, we launched a project to record and transcribe oral histories with more than twenty-five community members. At the end of the project, after staff members had an opportunity to review the transcripts, we realized the value of the information we’d gathered. We’re thrilled to begin sharing the contents of our oral history collection! There is a wealth of interesting stories and memories within the oral history collection – each oral history transcript contains dozens of pages of memories about a variety of people and topics.
Bob Gray, who passed away on May 31, 2020, was a remarkable man whose work withe the Pine Lake Presbyterian Church gave us the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and Issaquah Community Services.
