We are trained in producing oral histories. Since the mid-1990s, we have collected interviews and produced the oral histories of women’s contributions to our state in Community-Building, Entertainment, Education, Politics, Gaming, and Activism. These oral histories are contained in the Las Vegas Women Oral History Project. All oral histories are available in the Lied Library Special Collections Department.
Our most recent oral history documents the life and journalism career of Myram Borders longtime UPI reporter and Las Vegas Bureau Manager.
If you know a woman whose life reflects a valued contribution to our state let us know!
