Students Visit Huber

Students from Ohio State Marion’s English 2367.04 course, taught by Sue Oakes, visited Marion’s Huber Machinery Museum during autumn semester 2015. The students were participating in the Memories Project, an ongoing project by select second year writing classes on the Marion campus. The Memories Project collects oral history materials showing Marion County residents' involvement in, and attitudes toward, science, industry, and technology. A primary goal for the students participating is to document the technical history of workers, their families, jobs, and businesses in north central Ohio. Students visiting the museum were asked to focus on technological innovations, as well as the social history behind these innovative technologies and cultural attitudes toward them, by examining several agricultural, mechanical, industrial, and other selected objects in the Huber Machinery Museum collection.
