Lesbian Elders Oral Herstory Project
The Lesbian Elders Oral Herstory Project is a project of the Lesbian Herstory Archives supported by a two-year Mellon-funded Community Archives grant.
The project is guided by Julia Rosenzweig and Minda Matz. Julia has been an LHA volunteer since 2019 and is a recent MSLIS graduate with a concentration in archival studies from Pratt Institute School of Information. Minda has been an LHA volunteer since 2015 and has both an MLS and a Certificate in Archives and Preservation of Cultural Materials from Queens College, and an MA in History from Hunter College. We recently added an intern to the team! This is Nora’s first experience volunteering at LHA; Nora Waters has an MA in Oral History from Columbia University.
The Lesbian Elders Oral Herstory Project is supported by the entire Mellon Grant team comprised of: Alexis Clements, Amy Beth, Deborah Edel, Désirée Yael Vester, Elvis Bakaitis, Flavia Rando, Nicole Martin, and Shawn(ta) Smith-Cruz.
