On Mother's Day, 2006, I interviewed my mother about her mother. She told me this story about how she believes her Mom got some of her MIT classmates through calculus, based on how industry colleagues ("these captains of industry") and how they regarded their former classmate. (My grandmother graduated from MIT in 1920 and went on to work at the General Electric company in Schenectady, New York. She met my grandfather at GE.)
(I edited about 7+ minutes of audio to 3+ minutes and then illustrated/animated it in AfterEffects). This movie was first shown at the June 2006 Vloggercon conference in San Francisco for a panel on digital storytelling and oral history.
My web site, Family Oral History Using Digital Tools, discusses the techniques of interviewing family and using the computer to process and preserve those stories. http://familyoralhistory.us/
