Join the Greenwich Library Oral History Project in a fascinating exploration of the lives and legacies of some of our local legends. The Oral History Project will highlight the stories of several notable Greenwich athletes through their own words and share more about the ongoing work of the Oral History Project’s initiatives. This event will be followed by an opportunity to participate in a complimentary guided tour of the exhibition SPORTS! More Than Just A Game from 1:00-2:00 PM.

Begun in 1973 as a one-year project of the Greenwich Historical Society, the Oral History Project was invited to Greenwich Library in 1974 by then-director Nolan Lushington, who asked OHP to produce books as the library’s contribution to the town for the Bicentennial in 1976. Since 1974, the Project has been a permanent committee of the Friends of Greenwich Library. OHP is staffed by volunteers, and new members are always welcome.
