The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Carla Ehat oral history program

Repository: Marin County Free Library

Collection Description (CRHP): Betty Coleman discusses school desegregation, housing, and race relations in Marin County, particularly in Marin City.

Collection Description (Extant): From 1974 to 1984, Carla Ehat, with partner Anne Kent, and later Genevieve Martinelli, traveled from one end of Marin County to the other, interviewing a broad spectrum of Marin's long-time residents, ranging from ranchers to politicians and including descendents of early pioneer families. This program was co-sponsored by the Marin County Free Library and the Moya Library in Ross. The resulting archive, consisting of nearly 300 tapes and their corresponding transcriptions, are housed in the Anne T. Kent California Room at the Civic Center branch of the Marin County Free Library. Clicking on the alphabetical list above will take you to a picture of the individual accompanied by a short biography based on the notes of Carla Ehat; a full-text transcript of the interview; and a link to a selection from the audio version of the interview.
