Abstract

This collection exists because Rebecca Winborn was motivated by a desire to incorporate elder women into a "working, living archive" of their generational experiences. It includes interview transcripts, audio recordings (in the form of one cassette tape, twelve CDs, and digital files), photographs of all participants, and, in the case of one participant who passed away before the end of the project, materials from a funeral and correspondence with the family.

Dates of Materials: 2010 - 2013
