StoryCorps: remembering the 1932 Olympics

Since the StoryCorps Mobilebooth visited the North Country this summer, we've been spending a little time each Friday introducing you to some of the participants who got to document their stories by interviewing each other. Today, we'll hear an excerpt from June 19, when Dermott Morgan of Saranac Lake interviewed his father, Forrest "Dewdrop" Morgan. Forrest is a lifelong resident of the Adirondacks and has fond memories of the Winter Olympics coming to Lake Placid. No, not the 1980 games, but the 1932 games when he was ten years old. It was there that he met an Olympic champion who would go on to become an historic figure in World War II.  Go to full article

National StoryCorps project captures tales of Adirondack life

The effort is co-sponsored by North Country Public Radio. The recordings will be archived at the Library of Congress and some of the interviews will be aired here on NCPR. Brian Mann was at yesterday's opening ceremony in Saranac Lake and sent this audio postcard.  Go to full article
