Museum Oral Histories

NMJC and the Museum are gathering Oral Histories from prominent figures in the community. If you are interested in helping, or would like to suggest someone who should give an oral history, please contact Mary Lyle at mlyle@nmjc.edu. Take a look and listen at our oral history list below. We'll be adding new histories constantly.
