School Days: 75th Anniversary Oral History Project

Working with Muncy Historical Society and the students (past and present) of Muncy Jr/Sr High School, historian Robin Van Auken created a 30-minute DVD oral history project that features 35 alumni and current student interviews.

Historical Society volunteers and Muncy students collaborated on this important project as one component of the 75th anniversary celebration of Muncy’s High School. Since the release of the DVD, several alumni have passed away, reinforcing the importance of conducting oral histories for preservation of a community.

Each contributor received a DVD of their interview; more than 12 hours of raw video was edited into this glance through school days during the 20th and 21st centuries. DVDs are available from Muncy Historical Society.
