[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

This collection contains oral histories of custom harvesters operating in Kansas and surrounding states. Twenty-five interviews of individuals and couples, some from Mennonite families, were conducted between 2008 and 2010 by Jason P. Holcomb, Associate Professor of Geography, Morehead State University, Morehead, KY, in an oral history project partially funded by the Kansas Humanities Council and the Mennonite Heritage and Agricultural Museum (MHAM).

The collection includes six (6) DVDs containing WAV format interview audio files, PDF format transcripts of the interviews, PDF files of published articles, and scanned photo image files of interviewees with photo indexes. An index was created for eight of the interviews in cooperation with the MHAM.
