Description: These interviews with some of our older, long term and life time, residents were done during the late 70's and into the 80's. It was hoped they could preserve, at least, the memories of an era gone past. The original grant, from the National Endowment for the Humanities, was to make this information available to the public at no cost. With the coming of the "Computer Age" it is possible to preserve these memories in a digital format. With a grant from the Colorado Digitization Project we are scanning these interviews onto our computers here at the library and making them available not only to our local residents and patrons, but to the entire electronic community worldwide. They are a treasure beyond price and deserve to be shared with all who care to read them.
