UF Samuel Proctor Oral History Program Affiliation
I am proud to announce that I recently became affiliated with the University of Florida Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP), and this is my new profile (scroll down to the bottom). This is a great honor and an excellent opportunity to expand oral history initiatives to South Florida.
SPOHP is an award-winning and preeminent oral history program at the University of Florida. More than 6,500 oral history interviews are archived with the University of Florida. Lead by Dr. Paul Ortiz, the past President of the Oral History Association (OHA), the researchers and staff of SPOHP are dedicated to gathering, preserving and providing access to oral history interviews. The collections of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program range from Native Americans, various Florida and Regional Topics and the Veterans History Project.
South Florida Veterans History Project
My specific work with the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program will be on the South Florida Veterans History Project. This new work is a natural fit for what I already do with the Making History Project and I am excited to collaborate and work with SPOHP to preserve even more Veteran oral history interviews for the future.
