The Whately Historical Society has a large collection of audio and video oral histories. Many of these are available to be shared with the community. Oral history CD’s are available at the library, thanks to the CPA which paid for their digitization from reel to reel and cassette tapes, or available for purchase from the Historical Society ($15 for one; $25 for a 2-CD set). Click here for order form and list of oral histories.
Some recent video Whately Oral Histories are available on line thanks to FCAT community television, which taped the talks and posted them to the web.
