The Los Altos History Museum’s Oral History Program collects the stories of local residents who have made noteworthy contributions to our Los Altos communities and beyond. The purpose of this form is to nominate someone you think would be good subject for an oral history interview. Nominations need to include an explanation of the cultural, historical and/or aesthetic significance of the subject. Due to the high number of received submissions, your nomination will be added to our list of potential subjects. If selected, the nominee will be contacted when an Oral History Program volunteer is available. We sincerely thank you for your interest and participation!
