Oral Histories

'Stories of Service' is a series of oral histories with veterans produced by Bard's Digital History Lab as part of Historic Red Hook's collaboration with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Red Hook Post 7765. In this nine-minute memoir, Korean War veteran Ken Anderson shares his war memories with Historic Red Hook board member Chris Klose and Digital History Lab coordinator Gretta Tritch-Roman.

In 2017 Historic Red Hook collaborated with the Red Hook High School Oral History Project to match longtime residents with students learning oral history interview techniques. Here Tibbie Klose is interviewed by Mia Barbuto and filmed by Jenna Dorria. You can see more student-produced oral histories, including interviews with Larry Tetford, Don Triebel, Sue Crane, Beth Mead and Peggy Stork here.
