Oral histories are a unique tool for studying local history. Davison Paull discusses his project that brought together a collection of personal recollections about Westport intended to provide a window into what life in town was like in the past. His grandfather, Richard Paull, was an avid amateur historian who devoted much of his life to exploring the past of the town he adopted as his own at a young age. His tales are at the heart of this work. Davison also conducted interviews with many Westporters over more than a decade, and delved into an extensive archive of interviews from 1975-6 as part of Westport’s observance of America’s Bicentennial.
