Voices from St. Simons: Personal Narratives of an Island's Past
Simons is essentially Doster's effort to preserve the legacy of the area. For decades, he heard local residents utter the famous sentiment that someone should have recorded so-and-so's recollections before she died. Reading the obituary of a former elementary school teacher inspired him to set up face-to-face and telephone interviews that began his oral archaeological dig.
Doster works at Vanderbilt University and lives in Nashville with his wife, Anne. Subscribe now to be the first to hear about specials and upcoming releases.

Simon's but little knowledge of the history of the area in the 20th century. I was really happy to stumble across this collection of oral histories from people who mostly were born in the 's, 30's, and 40's.

Always interested in publications about St. Enjoyed reading and sharing this one. I live in this area
