The Spring, 2000 Transcripts

June 1, 2000

Editor's Note: After my interview with Elizabeth Lutz (which you can access here), she sent me multiple incredible files that she had compiled years ago. In her own attempt to preserve the stories of the community that her father joined and with which she grew up, she collected two incredible manuscripts (which you can access here and here) and she also collected her own transcript of oral histories in the spring of 2000. At a reunion reserved solely for the first generation of US oil workers in Venezuela—a type of reunion that attendee scarcity has driven out of existence—she tried to better understand the experience of the generation before her. The attached files are the transcripts of this work. -Trent


Access the pdf file, sent to me by Ms. Lutz, here. I have kept the files in the same order that they were presented to me.
