Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of oral histories, conducted from June 13, 2019 - June 6, 2022, recording the background and work experiences of staff in the Facilities and the Botanical Divisions of The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens.
Dr. José Orozco, of Whittier College, conducted the interviews, in collaboration with Clay Stalls of the Huntington Library. The Huntington Library's oral history project documents the work and lives of non-managerial staff employed in Facilities and the Botanical Division of The Huntington. They are the staff directly responsible for maintaining The Huntington's grounds, gardens, and buildings. The interviews are purposely intended to develop The Huntington's institutional archives' holdings on non-managerial staff in Facilities and the Botanical Division. As institutional history, the interviews have been accessioned into The Huntington's institutional archives.
