StoryCorps is a national initiative to document everyday history and the unique stories of America to be archived at the Library of Congress. This collection of first person stories will eventually grow into an oral history of America, providing a record of the way we live today as well as how we got here. Vermont Public Radio hosted the StoryCorps mobile recording booth in August 2006 to record stories of Vermonters. VPR is sharing some of those stories…. Barabara and Diane Snelling visited the StoryCorps Mobile Booth to talk about their family?s history. Barabara?s husband, the late Governor Richard Snelling, was Vermont?s longest-serving governor. She herself served as lieutenant governor …and daughter Diane is currently a member of the Vermont Legislature. In this edition of StoryCorps in Barbara and Diane Snelling reflect on participating in three decades of Vermont politics, starting with Richard Snelling?s first run for lieutenant governor.
