We are currently in the thick of the interview portion of our Mine Memories project. The Michigan Tech Archives’ oral history team has successfully completed interviews with six community members and has another interview schedules in the upcoming weeks. There are many more who have expressed interest in participating, though there is still room for more participants.
Even more work has been going on behind the scenes, as we transcribe and digitally process the resulting audio files from our interviews.
Keep an eye out for more blog updates about this project – as well as an upcoming student assistant’s accounts of working on the team.
If you have any questions about this project, or if you would like to share your mine-related histories, please contact the Michigan Tech Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 906-487-2505.
The Mine Memories project is funded in part by a Heritage Grant from the Keweenaw National Historical Park Advisory Commission.
