Oral histories from the South Sound get a second – digitized – life

UW Tacoma Professor Michael K. Honey digitized 20 years-worth of interviews his students conducted with community leaders, blue-collar workers, minorities, Native Americans and others in South Sound, giving a second life to these underrepresented voices and stories. The digitalized oral history collection is now available through UW Libraries. Michael Honey was featured in the Innovators Among Us series produced by the Office of the Provost, UW-IT, Center for Teaching and Learning, and UW Libraries.
