“Our mission is to help someone tell their story”
Here are a few short excerpts from Life Stories that should give you a feeling about what we do and how we do it.
Beatrice Zaslow was born in the Bronx, New York in 1914. This short excerpt from her nearly two hour interview shows how engaged and articulate she is as she recalls life events in detail. Her wisdom of 100 years of living is very inspiring, as is her perspective of the triumphs and tragedies of life. She also exhibits many of the core personality traits that are common to centenarians, which is fascinating.
Pat recounts memories of her great-grandmother, Leanna Donner, preserving stories which are not found in history books. Leanna was one of the five surviving daughters of George Donner from what is known in California’s early history as the Donner Party Expedition. The families of George and Jacob Donner were among many other emigrants traveling together who were trapped high in the Sierras during the winter of 1846-1847. There has never been a worse winter storm in that place since that time.
She worked as a research scientist at Miles Laboratories in Elkhart, Indiana (Alka-Seltzer, One-a-Day vitamins, Bactine, etc.) along with her husband, Alfred H. Free. Together they invented many useful medical devices one of which was the Dip-and-Read strips that diabetics use to monitor glucose levels and several other important levels in urine. It changed the world for diabetics, and it is still in worldwide use today along with another of their inventions… the electronic device that also measures those levels from a single drop of blood from a finger.
Each story is designed especially for you including the main interview, photographs, music, and your choice of media.
