Purdue Fast Track wants local input for oral history project

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Purdue students are looking for Tippecanoe County residents who have a story to tell. The students are recording memories of local history as a reference for future generations.

Anyone is welcome to participate, but preference will be given to older residents who were born before 1960. The students hope to do 50 interviews in an effort to assemble a comprehensive look at local life over the years.

“[The goal] is to document the personal history, the personal stories that our community members have held onto for so long,” said Kaitlyn Caldwell, one of the participating students.

The Tippecanoe County Video Archive project will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Purdue Memorial Union. Those interested in participating need to register by calling 765-494-5344 to schedule an interview time.
