"These, then, are the people of Truro and these are their stories - candy makers and meat merchants, minister's wife and mayor. They are all a part of the history of the town and of the province over this century. [...] This volume - Truro Voices - is a small collection of life stories that were gathered by the members of my oral history class which was taught in Truro in 1995. They have been edited for the purposes of this book. The full collection of interviews - tapes and transcripts - are available in the Colchester Historical Museum. These edited interview excerpts are chosen to highlight the lives and the living of some Truro residents and personal perspectives of Truro in tne twentieth century. Itis my hope that this slim volume will stimulate others to undertake more o ral history collecting in their community and share their research with others. There is no time like the present for if we wait and as people age, there will be no time at all." (pp 4-5).
