In 1983, students at Henderson County North Junior High School, under the direction of teacher Roy Pullam, began conducting videotaped interviews with prominent people in Kentucky. The original purpose of the project was to supplement state history textbooks; it has expanded to include interviews with prominent people in Henderson County and to preserve the history of Kentucky and the county.
The interviews cover a broad range of subjects, including literature, education, bluegrass music, country and western music, acting, politics, medicine, journalism, law, football, basketball, and baseball. Interviewees include former Kentucky governors Edward T. Breathitt, Jr., John Y. Brown, Jr., Julian Carroll, A. B. "Happy" Chandler, Martha Layne Collins, Bert T. Combs, Wendell H. Ford, Louie B. Nunn, and Lawrence W. Wetherby; other political figures Wendell P. Butler, Tim Lee Carter, John Sherman Cooper, Walter D. Huddleston, Edward F. Prichard, Jr., Harvey Sloane, Marie Turner, and Wilson W. Wyatt, Sr.; authors Harriette Simpson Arnow, Harry M. Caudill, and James Still; and athletes, educators, and many others.
