Five of the six transcriptions are available in full text online through the California Digital Library's eScholarship Repository.
Background
The Pacific Regional Humanities Center (PRHC) was an initiative funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2002 and overseen by the UC Davis Humanities Institute. The PRHC was created to generate humanities research and public programs for the Pacific United States and Territories: California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianas and emphasized the study of "place" in its many dimensions. During 2005-2006, the PRHC, in collaboration with the Middle Mountain Foundation, collected oral histories of landowners in the area of the Sutter Buttes. The Sutter Buttes are a small mountain range located in the north Sacramento Valley of California.
