Oral History Interviews

Richard Gehman Collection
Richard Gehman, a Lancaster county native, was a prominent celebrity magazine writer in the 1950s and 60s. Through the digitization of his materials, we discovered many connections to prominent jazz figures of the day. We were able to interview Maggie Condon, the daughter of one of Gehman’s frequent collaborators, Eddie Condon, to add context to our digitized Gehman collection. More oral history interviews are planned to add context and vitality to the jazz history collections at Millersville University.

Presented on Richard Gehman at OHA 2012, newsletter blurb here.
