The Life and Legacy of Eric R. Cregeen
Internationally renowned social historian Eric R. Cregeen (1921–83) was one of UK’s prime movers in recording oral history. Formerly with the Manx Museum, he came to Scotland in 1954, taking up posts with the University of Glasgow then, in 1966, with Edinburgh’s School of Scottish Studies. This project will digitise his fieldwork notebooks, hundreds of photographs, slides and manuscripts, and will also give training in oral history skills.
