Stories of Southern Maryland

The retention of an archives assistant employed in the Southern Maryland Studies Center, who would transcribe 40 oral history interviews documenting the history and culture of southern Maryland.

The Southern Maryland Studies Center currently makes available to the public 321 oral histories with an estimated total time of 450 hours of audio recordings with a wide range of subjects including education in Southern Maryland, influenza epidemic, the great depression, various themes that give voice to minorities currently underrepresented in our repository, local industry and more. Following archival and transcription best practices, 40 oral histories will be listened to and transcribed to a word document that will then be converted to a PDF file that conforms to accessibility standards. Each record will be published in our website and made available to all.
