Historical Note

Dr. Joe Goldenberg of the Virginia Commonwealth University's Department of History directed this NEH grant funded project from 1979-1980. The purpose of the project was to make history about the Chesapeake Bay available to schools. The interview tapes were used in Virginia schools for approximately five years; in Maryland, selected interviews were broadcast on WBJC radio for approximately one month. The original recordings are stored at Virginia Commonwealth University, and a complete second set exists at the Calvert Marine Museum, Solomons, Maryland.
