Wetherby Cranberry Library Oral History Project
In 2018, the WSCGA undertook a project to create an oral history collection within the Wetherby Cranberry Library. This project involves capturing oral accounts of the history of the industry, and the thoughts and perspectives of leaders in the grower community. The purpose of this project is to expand the Library's collection of materials valuable to the heritage of the industry in the state. The WSCGA Collaborated with the UW-Stevens Point History Department, Recollection Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Historical Society to complete this project.
The Wetherby Cranberry Library is named in honor of the Jim & Nodji Van Wychen family, owners of the Wetherby Cranberry Company, in Warrens, Wis. The library was made possible by the Van Wychen family’s generous gift of $10,000
