Description: In 1982, Kathryn Sargeant and Mary Davis began an archaeological survey of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, an incorporated village in the Albuquerque's North Valley. Part of the project involved speaking with local people and asking for permission to walk across and examine their properties for archaeological sites. It became apparent to Sargeant and Davis that the local people had a wealth of historical information in their memories that needed to be documented. Thus, in 1983, the North Valley Oral History Project was born with three main goals: to present a picture of life in the North Valley before its transition from a rural to a suburban community, to record oral histories for present and future populations of the North Valley, and to create a body of primary source material about the North Valley for scholarly research.
