Interviews

The Arrow Lakes Historical Society has completed the task of digitising our collection of interviews and oral histories, which date as far back as 1965. Originally recorded onto magnetic tape (reel-to-reel and/or cassette), these priceless recordings formed the basis for much of the society’s research and publications. These first-hand accounts from long-time residents of the region, many of whom have long since passed on, provide an enlightening window into pioneer life in the Arrow Lakes region. Approximately ninety percent of these interviews were conducted by longtime Arrow Lakes historian Milton Parent over the course of 40 years, with the remainder coming from various sources. At long last, we are very excited to release these treasured recordings to the public in digital format. This task began in October 2015 and was completed in May 2016. In addition, the ALHS is commencing a new series of interviews/oral histories; these interviews will also be posted to this page as they are completed.

The recordings are listed in alphabetical order according to the surname of the interview/oral history subject, with previous surnames in parentheses if applicable. Recordings digitised with the past month are marked ‘NEW’.

This project was made possible thanks to funding from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance.

PLEASE NOTE: These recordings have, in no way, been altered other than for minimal background noise filtering. The contents are presented as they were originally recorded with no content edits made. As such, some recordings may appear to begin in the middle of a conversation or end abruptly. The stories and anecdotes relayed represent the opinions and recollections of the interview participants and may vary from person to person. Due to the limitations of portable recording at the time these interviews were conducted, some sound may appear muffled or muddy. Also, note that some of the language contained in these recordings may appear archaic, defamatory, and/or inappropriate to the modern ear.
