Historical Society seeks veterans


The Durham Historical Society is looking for veterans from Durham who would be interested in being interviewed about their experiences in the service. The goal of the project is to record the oral history from these men and women and eventually publish these interviews in a book documenting Durham’s involvement in all wars. All video and/or audio recordings would also be available to the public at the historical society.

Veterans can be native to Durham or currently living in town and could have served at any point (World War II to the present). Family members of a deceased veteran are welcome to tell their story.

The Historical Society is also looking for volunteers who would like to conduct interviews, edit video, or participate in other ways.

For more information, to participate or volunteer, contact Sarah Atwell at (860) 716-5497 or satwell@wesleyan.edu.
