An "Oral History Workshop" has been scheduled for the Calhoun Library on May 10th beginning at 6:30 p.m., according to Bob Bonar, President of the Calhoun Historical Society.

The West Virginia Department of Archives will conduct the session, which will help individuals to take recorders to older citizens or interesting Calhoun people and make a recording of their comments. Bonar made the announcement at last evenings meeting. "We are going to invite interested parties from our adjoining counties to attend," he said.

Carl Morris, well-known Calhoun businessman and publisher of The Calhoun Chronicle, was recognized as Calhoun's History Hero, an honor bestowed upon him by the society and presented to him at West Virginia History Day in Charleston.

A report was given by Jim Morris regarding progress on the Stump Hotel restoration project, which will use a $208,000 grant from HUD. Morris said the old State Farm/Quality Shop building adjacent the hotel will be developed as a multi-media center to display the history of the county. Much of the property has been donated by Dr. Charles Albert Stump of Daytona, Florida.
