Cornwall Oral History Project, 1980 – 1982

12/8/20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, staff of the Pennsylvania State Archives were tasked with creating transcripts from oral history interviews that have not previously been transcribed. Reigh recently completed transcription work on seven interviews relative to the Cornwall Oral History Project. The talk will chronicle his work and include audio excerpts from several the interviews. Those wishing to learn more about the history of Cornwall and the Cornwall Ore Banks, Bethlehem Steel’s Lebanon Plant, and general topics relative to Lebanon city and county during the 20th Century, should plan to attend.

Reigh has been employed as an archivist at the Pennsylvania State Archives in Harrisburg since February 2002. Born and raised in Lebanon city, Reigh is a graduate of Lebanon Senior High School (1990), Millersville University (B.A. History 1994) and the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (M.A. History 1997). He served his undergraduate assistantship at the Cornwall Iron Furnace in 1993 and has continuously either worked or volunteered at the site up to the present day. His studies and historical interest have focused on industrial and labor history, specifically Pennsylvania’s rich iron, steel, and labor heritage.

Mike Emery (CIF Administrator) will moderate a brief discussion at the end of the presentation.

This is an online lecture will utilize the Zoom platform.

Limited space available, registration required.

Presentation is offered at no cost to attendees. Donations appreciated
