Reg "Dutch" Thompson Oral History Collection

Mr. Thompson currently has approximately 700 hours of field recordings stored on audio-cassette in his home, along with an additional 100 hours recorded on video. This is surely one of the richest single troves of oral history in Eastern Canada – a treasure of both provincial and regional significance – and Mr. Thompson has partnered with the UPEI Library to digitize this collection and make elements of it available on-line.
