Title: Thomas B. Linn Oral History Photo Collection

Dates: 1897-1919

Collection Number: 00032-ST-11

Quantity: 12 items

Abstract: Photographs copied from personal collection of Thomas B. Linn during his Oral History Interview in Portland (ND) Steele County. The interview can be found on Oral History tape 927A.

Provenance: The North Dakota Oral History Project was undertaken by Larry Sprunk, with the cooperation of the North Dakota American Revolution Bicentennial Commission, the North Dakota Farmers Union, and the State Historical Society of North Dakota. The primary objective of the North Dakota Oral History Project was to conduct oral tape recorded interviews with North Dakotans who lived through the state's history and who could speak of this history from a first-hand basis. Interviewees were photographed at the time of their interviews. In addition, the project borrowed over 6,000 historical photographs which were copied and added to the State Historical Society's collection. Many interviewees also donated family histories, documents, letters, ledgers, books, and artifacts.
