Title : Green Mountain Chronicles oral history transcriptions, 1981-1989 (bulk: 1987-1988).
Physical Description : 2 linear ft. (2 boxes).
Summary :

The transcriptions in this collection represent interviews of approximately 42 individuals conducted primarily in 1987 and 1988 by Mark Greenberg, Mary Kasamatsu, Eleanor Ott, and Tom Davis in preparation for a radio series entitled "Green Mountain Chronicles." The series of 52 five-minute programs was broadcast by commercial and public radio stations throughout the state in late 1988 and early 1989. The earliest interview in the collection was conducted in 1981; the latest was in 1989.

The goal of the radio series was to tell the history of Vermont in the twentieth century using archival sound recordings and recent interviews. The project was undertaken by the Vermont Historical Society in celebration of its 150th anniversary in 1988 and was funded by a $14,000 grant from the Vermont Council on the Humanities and Public Issues with additional support from New England Telephone Company.

The repository does not own the tapes from which the transcriptions in this collection were made; it does own tapes of the final "Green Mountain Chronicle" radio broadcasts.
