Jacob Horton (2013)


Jacob Horton worked with the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) for two years following graduation from the OHMA program. During that time, he developed content for a museum exhibition elucidating the experiences of Nantucket’s first-generation immigrant population, established a volunteer interviewing program, and organized the NHA’s standing oral history archive which holds oral records dating back to 1934.

Jacob also developed a blog and social media model for sharing current and archived material, experimented with video collection, and developed a set of prototype podcasts featuring contemporary and archival audio.

He has since left the field of oral history and is working as an English language editor in Shanghai, China.
