Thread Name: Origin: Coal Not Dole (Kay Sutcliffe)
Subject: CHIK project
I saw Bob posted a mention to the Kent CHIK project - do you have any idea what happened to the original oral history interviews as no one can give me a clear answer on where there are, if they have been transcribed or archived? Sounded like a great project in theory but totally inaccessable for research!! I'm an oral historian looking at women against pit closures and have ended up going with the Iris Preston collection in Mass Observation at Sussex University. It's a fantastic archive and I'm currently on the hunt for a coal not dole t-shirt!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
