Charlotte Selver Oral History and Book Project


The purpose of the Charlotte Selver Oral History and Book Project
is to create for the first time a detailed biography
of Charlotte Selver's life and an oral history of people
who have been touched by her and her work.

This web site offers updates on the project, which was launched
in January of 2008, though its beginnings go back to 1999,
when I interviewed Charlotte Selver extensively with this in mind.

New content is being added regularly, some of which is accessible
exclusively to supporters of the project on the Members page.
There you can see a log of my activities, excerpts (audio and transcripts)
of the work in progress as well as archival documents.

A project like this is not possible without the support of many.
I am very grateful to the Sensory Awareness Foundation,
who's support includes fiscal sponsorship for the project.

Heartfelt thanks go to the many private donors.
It is for the most part through their generosity that this work is possible.
As Charlotte would say: "Without you, nothing – with you, everything!"

Thank you!
