SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Cooperative Oxford Laboratory (COL) in Oxford, Maryland was 
established in 1960 and has operated under a cooperative agreement 
between NOAA and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) 
for the last 12 years. Research conducted by COL scientists has 
supported efforts to sustain historic fisheries along the Atlantic 
coast of the United States for nearly 50 years. As COL's 50th 
anniversary approaches, staff at the National Centers of Coastal Ocean 
Science will undertake a cultural history project to document and 
preserve the rich and unique history of the COL, its importance to the 
local seafood industry, and the cultural memory of the ``oyster 
years.'' In addition to collecting historical documents, photographs 
and artifacts, the researchers will conduct 25 to 30 videotaped oral 
history interviews with key members from the local community who have 
historic knowledge of COL and local, coastal resources. This includes 
scientists, resource managers, watermen, business owners, and 
knowledgeable members of the general community. The goal of the oral 
history project is to collect stories about the successes and 
challenges related to preserving the local seafood industry, and to 
document the rich history and local heritage tied to the COL. These 
videotaped oral histories will be archived with local, regional, and 
national organizations. In addition, the researchers will edit clips 
from the interviews to create short documentaries, which will be made 
available to local, regional, and national museums and other entities.

II. Method of Collection

    Researchers will conduct videotaped, unstructured oral history 
interviews.
