    Biography / Administrative History

    The California Council for Humanities (CCH) funded the "When We Were Young: The Experiences of Stocktonians Across Three Generations," (STOCKTONSpeaks!) project conducted by Robert Benedetti at the Jacoby Center for Public Service and Civic Leadership, University of the Pacific. The goal of the project was to use stories to strengthen the community through the collection of experiences of ethnic Stocktonians across three generations: grandparents (elders), parents (adults), and young people (youth). Narratives were collected from the following nine ethnic groups: Native American, African American, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Filipino, Mexican American, Cambodian, and Hmong.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    The collection consists of material generated during the implementation of the project and the final reports. Included are notes, photos and audio from the interviews of 54 Stocktonians.
