I’m proud to announce that the Doodlebug Music Studio has won a bid to digitize her entire collection. Her collection contains almost 50 recordings, and once digitized will be available to all, beginning in October 2015, at our Arvid E. Miller Library Museum! Although I’m only 7 recordings into preparing the full collection, I’ve already experienced some interesting parts of our tribal history.
We still miss Dot, those of us who knew her. But perhaps some of who she was, some of her legacy, will be available to everyone in the form of these recordings. I still remember her typical email sign-off to me (below), and am proud to be working now, in my own small way, to digitally unwrap the lifelong gift of her audio collection for all to experience.
“For now, Love
or maybe Cussin Dot”
