The Kutsche Office partners with local communities to collect, preserve, and make accessible their unique histories. These harvests include collecting oral histories, archiving photos and historic documents, organizing exhibitions, developing curriculum, and partnering with libraries, schools, and community groups. This work is made possible with assistance from Grand Valley undergraduate and graduate students who integrate research experience with hands-on service. We are currently partnering with the Saugatuck-Douglas History Center on our National Endowment for the Humanities funded project, Stories of Summer. We are combining this talk with the Opening Reception for the Stories of Summer Exhibit. It will give us the opportunity to share with you an up close look at the results of a successful history harvest project.
