Oral Histories

Voices From The Past

In the late 1970s, it became obvious to Bunty Robb, the librarian of the Captiva Memorial Library, that the tales she had heard of the old days of Captiva from long time residents needed to be captured and recorded.  

In 1977 the big project of recording the oral histories of long time residents of Captiva began, under the devoted guidance and implementation of Marian Chapman, Kay Shultz, Gene Peck, Gloria Berry, and more.

The oral histories, the result of the dedication and love of the island, have been digitally preserved for your listening enjoyment and enlightenment.
