As I mentioned in my previous post, I have not been in town during ISP. However, I’ll be returning to Sarasota tomorrow and will start research immediately. Joy and I have both been in contact with Jeff LaHurd at the Sarasota County Historical Resources Center, so we just need to schedule a time to visit the center.
The oral history project from last semester provided me with some useful sites to add to our archival collection.
The Florida Memory site has a wonderful collection of photographs of Sarasota and Sarasota community. It also as a collection of World War I service cards. Here’s the link: https://www.floridamemory.com/solr-search/results/?q=%28sarasota%20OR%20tt%3Asarasota^10%29&query=sarasota
Another great site is the Sarasota History Alive site: http://www.sarasotahistoryalive.com/index.php?src=directory&view=Stories&srctype=detail&refno=1675&category=Journals%20of%20Yesteryear
This is all that I have to date, but will be on the look out for some more archival sources.
Until next time,
