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.
