WKU faculty, students documenting local history

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- The Western Kentucky University Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology is using a grant to document the history and culture of Allen County in the southern part of the state.

The Laura Goad Turner Charitable Foundation is funding the project, which is expected to last about two years.

Project director Erika Brady, a professor of Folk Studies, said about a dozen graduate students and six undergraduate students will follow up on leads already found. Another group of students in a cultural conservation course will be gathering information on food and cooking.

The community project will be spotlighted in an open house for the Allen County Newseum from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. CDT Monday at the Allen County Community Action Center in Scottsville.
