The Smithsonian maintains an accessible archive of audio and video interviews of interesting people.for their Center of Folklife and Cultural Heritage. Audio portions are often played on NPR, I think the segment is "In Their Own Words."

 

In every community — in families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools — there are people who have knowledge and skills to share — ways of knowing and doing that often come from years of experience and have been preserved and passed down across generations. As active participants in community life, these bearers of tradition are primary sources of culture and history.

 

We hope that the Smithsonian Folklife and Oral History Interviewing Guide inspires you to turn to members of your own family and community as key sources of history, culture, and tradition.

Does the Scouting Museum do something similar but focused on how scouting benefited their life? If so, someone should interview Mr. Rocky Gannon.

One of my favorite Eagle projects was one scout organizing an oral history project of our veterans, especially WWII and Korean War vets. There's one vet I'd love to record an oral history, but a lot of what he did is still classified. He was rather upset that I discovered some info on him, but laughed when I said the report said he was CIA, when in fact he was DIA.

No, you need to go to the NC Archives and Records to hear them and read the transcripts.
