Great Salt Lake Oral History Project

Saline Stories:  An Oral History of the Great Salt Lake

In August of 2013 the American West Center launched a new project focused on creating a comprehensive oral history collection that documents human engagement with Great Salt Lake. The interviews tell the stories of a broad spectrum of user groups and stakeholders including people engaged in scientific research, government/land management, recreation, art, industry, and conservation. The final collection, projected to include over one hundred interviews, will bring a humanities perspective to research on the lake and remain a valuable public and scholarly resource for generations to come.
