About the People Made the Program files

This series contains cassette tapes and slides given to the UNH Archives by Maynard C. Heckel, Director Emeritus of UNH Cooperative Extension and Professor Emeritus of Adult Education. The tapes contain interviews with former Cooperative Extension Professionals from 17 states from Maine to Wyoming.

The interviews were conducted in 1981 and at the time, the persons interviewed were average age of 83.7 with thirteen of the respondents over 90. These were people that had devoted their professional lives to Cooperative Extension and shared valuable hisotric background describing how things were. The comments of the retirees provide a philosophical basis for Cooperative Extension and describe educational methods that demonstrated creativity and innovation.

Included is a sampling of interviews with younger staff that had less than 5 years experience at the time of the interviews.

Also for review is a video tape titled "People Made the Program". This video includes a sampling of the interviews and provides some additional background.
