Oral History as Care: Preserving Memories & Maintaining Stakeholder Relationships
This paper will outline a recent oral history project the author undertook with the artist Bill Hutson, currently the Jennie Brown Cook & Betsy Hess Cook Distinguished Artist-in-Residence at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The author will discuss the project’s impetus, process, and lessons learned. Special attention will be paid to the ways in which the project both intersected with and deviated from standard best practices in the field of oral history, in service of the project’s greater success.
