Oral History Initiative - Liz
Bryson, Librarian (retired),for the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope
recorded and researched the oral history of men and women whose
resulted in the development, design and construction of a world class
observatory on Mauna Kea. These
culminated in a DVD that
offers first-hand knowledge of special historical developments and
experiences as they related to their memories while working at CFHT
from its inception through 1989. For more information regarding the DVD
and the project, continue on to the oral history web page.
Initiative, Part II- While “Gathering the Forgotten Voices” emphasized the
personal history of those involved with the first decade of deep-space
observing, the new DVD explores the CFHT innovation in instrumentation
from vision to design to construction. Bryson has chronicled the
breakthroughs of the observatory's staff so that it may serve as a
prototype for qualitative research at other technological centers.
