Oral History

At Lifetime Learning we believe that one of our duties is to preserve Mission’s unique history. Through our Oral History Archives we collect and make available to researchers and the public, the little-told stories of the people of Mission.

In our collection, there are stories from Missionites who remember raised sidewalks on Main Street, the original “swimming pool”, summer jobs at the King Beach factory, and businesses, families, community events and clubs from Mission’s past. Oral Histories preserve the sights, the smells, the sounds of yesterday, and tell the story of creating the Mission we know today.

Lifetime Learning’s Oral History Program owes its continued success to the volunteers who graciously donate their time and talents to digitizing, summarizing and transcribing these histories.

The collection consists of audio recordings on cassette tapes. Some of the oral histories have been transcribed, and some have been summarized. A number of the audio tapes have been digitized and converted to CDs. Tapes and CDs are not available for borrowing, but researchers and members of the public are most welcome to to consult the collection by appointment during our office hours.
