About the Project

2005 Digitization Project

The Colbiana Collection located in Colby College Special Collection includes 197 audiotapes containing “Little Talks” programs dated from 1972 to 1982. With grant funds from the Maine Historical Records Advisory Board, for which we are grateful, 23 programs were preserved and reformatted using the services of Perrow Audio Productions in Readfield, Maine. Ernie Marriner ’50 (son) was extremely helpful in supplying program scripts to select those programs of most interest to the Colby and Waterville communities.

The 23 digitized “Little Talks” programs are compiled in a six-CD set that has been cataloged for the Miller circulating collection. Check the Colby libraries web catalog for more information.
