The Twentieth Century Club was a "town and gown" organization designed to bring together educators with business and professional people for discussion and socializing. The collection consists of a history of the club, programs, minutes, correspondence and receipt books kept during the club's existence.
This collection comprises oral history interviews, transcripts and related materials generated through the 2006 Waterfront Oral History Project in Bellingham, Washington. Students at Western Washington University interviewed eighteen current and former employees of the Georgia-Pacific Corporation's pulp mill on Bellingham's industrial waterfront. Interviewees discuss plant operations and topics including research into chemical byproducts and their uses in other industries, relations between the GP corporation, mill employees, and the community (including Western Washington University), as well as labor and union activity. The collection includes audio-visual footage recorded by David Albright, portions of which were incorporated into his 2006 documentary "Smells Like Money: The Story of Bellingham's Georgia-Pacific Plant".
The Western Washington University Centennial Oral History Project Records documents the reflections of various faculty, staff, presidents and other administrators of the university from its origins as Bellingham Normal School to its current university status for the celebration of of its centennial.
