CCBA Oral History Project

The video oral histories are archived on DVD at the Clackamas County Law Library. Copies of the DVDs are available to CCBA members to check out. The current CCBA Oral History Project collection comprises over a dozen interviews.

Volunteer Transcribers Needed

Some oral histories have been transcribed, but we are always looking for volunteer transcribers. If you would like to transcribe one of the audio recordings, please email Jennifer Dalglish at the Clackamas County Law Libray or contact any of the CCBA officers.

Oral History Project

The CCBA Oral History Project was created under the Presidency of Mr. Peter Glazer to help preserve our collective memory through the heart and soul of the organization – its members. Since 2008, we have collected biographical interviews of local attorneys and judges who have played a significant role in the history of the Clackamas Bar. Mr. Michael O’Rourke, an expert Oregon oral historian, has conducted all of the interviews to date.
