In response to the terrorist aircraft attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC, the Joint Archives of Holland put out a call to the Holland and Hope College communities for their memories of September 11, 2001. The collection includes audiotape cassettes with recordings of persons’ approximately 90-second oral history of their memories (audiotape cassette and transcriptions), hardcopy versions of e-mails of memories, internal memos, newspaper clippings (including an article about David Pruim, a 1970 Hope College graduate who was killed in the attacks), publications like People Magazine, hardcopy versions of website pages from Hope College, local newspapers documenting the event and its aftermath, “National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, 2002” proclamation by President George W. Bush, and an audiovisual interview with local survivor, Chad Creevy, concerning his escape from the World Trade Center (edited and unedited DVDs, audiotape cassettes, and transcription).
