Audio from CRAFT's first Oral History Project now Available for the Public

CRAFT is happy to announce that audio from our first oral history project within the Western Pennsylvania Foodways Collection has been posted to Artstor Public, and can be found here.

This flagship project, Babka and Beyond: Bread, Grains, and Baked Goods in Western Pennsylvania, explores in-depth stories about how grains -- from agriculture to bread making and baking -- can contribute to larger themes of identity, community, and social capital. This project encompasses a series of oral history interviews that aim to document a previously undocumented segment of Western Pennsylvania culture and labor.

Video clips, photographs, full transcriptions, and more audio will continue to be added to Artstor Public. Please reach out to us at with any questions about the project and resources.
