This Mental Health Trust Historical Project Jukebox was funded by the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, which works in collaboration with the State Department of Natural Resources and the Alaska Permanent Fund Coporation, and the Alaska Humanities Forum. Karen Perdue, Associate Vice-President for Health Programs at the University of Alaska and Vivian Hamilton, Communications Director for the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, were key liasions on this project providing administrative oversight and content review. Karen Perdue and Ellen Ganley (of Information Insights, Fairbanks, Alaska) conducted extensive research about the history of Morningside Hospital in Oregon and created the Morningside Hospital Blog.
The oral history interviews were conducted in 2006 - 2012 by Dr. William Schneider and Karen Brewster of the Oral History Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and Karen Perdue of the University of Alaska. We were accompanied on some interviews by Deborah Lawton and Michael Letzring from KUAC radio/tv in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Jukebox was created starting in 2007 by Project Jukebox staff: Karen Brewster, Naomi Huesmann, and Stacey Carkhuff. The project was updated in 2012 by Marla Statscewich and Jeannine Haney.
