The collection’s 163 items span the years 1900-1917, with the bulk of the material coming from the year 1913.
North Dakota State University Institute for Regional Studies
The North Dakota State University Institute for Regional Studies, part of NDSU Libraries, offers this sampling of oral histories found in various collections donated to the Institute. Also included are music recordings that have a North Dakota connection. The common theme is voices of North Dakotans talking about events in their lives and the state's past. For most of the voices available here, a printed transcript is also present; for music items, the original sheet music is included.
University of Iowa Libraries
This collection includes photographs and scrapbooks featuring news clippings, newsletters, and correspondence formerly owned by Iowa natives Louise Noun and Mary Louise Smith.
