My oral histories and artist documentary footage are quite detailed and some are interviewed by other artists or supporters of the arts. They are being logged and arhcived for historical reference.
I am actively working to complete the archives of the footage, photographs and audio recordings of each individual to be submitted to the U.S. Library of Congress.
