Capitol Hill Oral Histories Get a New Digital Home

Interface helps re-engineer The Ruth Ann Overbeck Capitol Hill History Project of carefully preserved oral histories from longtime residence of the area.

The website incorporates materials collected by Overbeck Project volunteers during the project's 17-year history.

The website features more than 200 transcribed interviews with long-time Capitol Hill residents, including numerous portraits. Information on upcoming Overbeck Capitol Hill History lectures and summaries of past presentations. Historic photographs, maps and other images relating to the oral histories or associated with the history of Capitol Hill. Sources for research on Capitol Hill's past.

The website was designed and created by Interface Multimedia under the leadership of Mark Burlinson and Jeff Pulford. Overbeck Project volunteers Bernadette McMahon and Maygene Daniels assisted in the conceptual design and reformatted and moved content to the new site. John Franzen and Nancy Metzger offered advice and guidance, and volunteers Betsy Barnett and David MacKinnon reviewed the content.

Development of the website was supported by the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.
