Jubilee Oral History Transcripts


The fiftieth anniversary of Cranbrook, in 1976, was a perfect opportunity to conduct oral history interviews with a number of long-term residents. Jean Teasdale interviewed the residents and the interviews are lodged in the State Library. The transcripts are held in the Local Studies Collection and are available to researchers and other visitors.
