Mrs. Carolyn Benham, a respected teacher at Stigler High School, is single-handedly responsible for the collection of taped and transcribed interviews, which have been gathered over the years by her high school students as class assignments.

From 1984 to present, Mrs. Carolyn Benham has selected certain students to collect interviews with historical merit from local citizens. She has very graciously given most of these completed interviews to be housed at the Haskell County Museum, for safe-keeping, and for access by the public.

It is a pleasure to announce that the interviews featured here are part of an ongoing project here at the Society to digitize and publish to the web some portion of the interviews that Mrs. Carolyn Benham and her students have gathered.

Because it would not be plausible to publish every interview in its entirety, we have indexed alphabetically every interviewee which can be found, see list above. We invite you to visit the Haskell County Museum and read the original transcripts of interviews in which you are interested.
