CSU Makes Oral History Archive for 2013 Floods

Colorado State University has created an online oral history archive of Colorado’s 2013 flooding. “September 2015 marked the second anniversary of the floods that ravaged Colorado’s Front Range. In an interview about the devastation, Jamestown Mayor Tara Schoedinger recalled a dramatic moment following days of rain: ‘My husband … ran outside and said, “There goes the gulch.” … He came back in less than a minute later, and he said, “Joey’s house collapsed, and he’s in it. Call 9-1-1.”‘ As part of remembering the floods, the Water Resources Archive at the Colorado State University Libraries has made Schoedinger’s interview and 30 others available through its online repository. Each audio recording is accompanied by a full transcript.”
