The Memory Man


Welcome To ‘Memory Man’

The sharing of stories is one of the main elements that bind families and communities together and once captured become available for the generations to come.


Oral history is perhaps the simplest of recording mediums, but conveys so much more than the written account. It is impossible, for example, to replicate in writing the humour, timing, idiosyncrasies, etc, of the human voice.


About Us

Memory Man Beginnings

Bob Mitchell‘s first interview was in 1996, a very personal one which captured the memories of a dying father. The oral recordings led to a book ‘Scone Larrikin’ which was both self published and published by the NSW branch of the Oral History Association Of Australia (OHAA) in 1997
