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. Nora Waters joined the team as a Project Consultant over the summer! This is Nora’s first experience at LHA; they have 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.
