Oral History Project

The Retiree’s Council is partnering with senior honor society All Maine Women (AMW) to interview retirees to build an archive of oral histories (stored in Fogler Library Special Collections). The Council’s own AMW Alumna Marian Dressler has been leading this project. The AMW have prepared videos of portions of their interviews which will be available in the near future on this website.
