Minnesota Pandemic Oral History Project

Identifier: Tretter-532


The Minnesota Pandemic Oral History Project was conducted in 2021 to document information about the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic in Minnesota. The project was funded by a grant from the Minnesota Historical Society and its Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (Legacy fund) to Portal Research of Minneapolis. Those involved were Emil Angelica (Project Director,) Barbara W. Sommer (Project Coordinator and Lead Interviewer,) Adam Negri (Interviewer,) and Lois Glewwe (Transcriber.) The project's copyright is held by the Hennepin History Museum, and additional copies are available there and with the Ramsey County Historical Society.
