About this collection

These oral history interviews were conducted by Ruth L. Wett as part of an oral history project sponsored by the Tacoma Public Library in 1976. Each interview provides insight into activities in various neighborhoods, the mixture of immigrant communities, and the reflections on everyday experiences living in Tacoma around the turn of the last century.

"These gathered fragments remind us not only of how Tacoma was, but how we wanted it to be. Even the most commonplace accounts are touched with the sense of aspirations shared."- Murray Morgan, Voices of the Past

 

NOTE: The digitization process was able to clean up and remove some, but not all, of the original distortions and noise contained on the tapes.
