Oral History: Shirley Athay

February 15 @ 5:00 pm

Join the Library and the Sawtooth Interpretive and Historical Association (SIHA) for an evening of history.  We’ll watch an edited recording of an interview and learn some fun facts about Stanley in the days gone by!  If you cannot make it in person, please join by zoom.

In this Oral History Audio Presentation, Shirley Athay shares her memories of living in Stanley from 1929-1935, when her father, Preston Linford, was working as a surveyor and construction engineer for the department of transportation.  The audio story is accompanied with historic photos of the area.

As the keeper and teller of stories of the Sawtooth Salmon River Country, SIHA maintains an archive of oral histories and continues to acquire more. These interviews teach us about the colorful and influential individuals who shaped our community and the landscape. SIHA is working to make these valuable resources publicly available and is excited to share them!

If you have knowledge of the Sawtooth-Salmon River Country in the early days or know of someone who does, please contact SIHA at: [email protected].  Find more information at Preserving the past. Protecting the future (discoversawtooth.org).
