Reeves -- Background and Contact Info.
Biographical statement: Since June 2007 Reeves has led the oral history program at UW—Madison. Before that he directed the Idaho Oral History Center from 1999-2006. In both of those positions, Reeves has overseen the key components of managing an oral history program—gathering, preserving, and providing access to recorded interviews, as well as educating interested individuals about the art and science of oral history. Reeves also has collaborated with groups interested in working on oral history projects, including environmental, cultural, and political topics. He has convened the first two Wisconsin Oral History Days in the spring of 2008 and 2009, an event designed to bring people from the state and region together for one day of oral history discussions and community building. He also has served in leadership roles for the Northwest Oral History Association and the newly formed Midwest Oral Historians. On top of these responsibilities, Reeves has published on oral history topics, led workshops for state historical societies and university libraries, and served on OHA taskforces, most recently a group brought together to revise the organization’s standards and best practices.
