Arboretum Voices
An Oral History Series About Morris Arboretum

Arboretum Voices is an Oral History Project of the Archive & History Program of the Morris Arboretum. Audio producer, Barbara Dundon, has collected personal narratives of individuals who have important stories to tell about the Arboretum, some dating back to the 1930’s. The goal of this project is to share a more profound and intimate understanding of our history.
