Harvey Memories Project

The Harvey Memories Project, a collaboration between Rice University, University of Houston Libraries, Harris County Public Library, and Houston Public Library, is now live. The mission of the project is to collect, preserve, and share digital artifacts associated with Hurricane Harvey, as well as the many personal stories that Harvey left in its wake—stories of rescue, resilience, and recovery, as well as stories of painful loss and lingering questions.

Members of the UH community are encouraged to contribute items and stories to the project.

Members of the project team will be holding public events in August to promote the website as well as to assist the public in submitting their materials and stories. Two events include:

  • Friday, August 17, 10 am – 2 pm at the Kashmere Multi-Service Center, in partnership with Houston Public Libraries
  • Sunday, August 26, 6:30 – 8pm at Tom Bass Park

The Harvey Memories Project is supported by generous funding from a HERE Grant from the Office of the Provost at Rice University and from the Humanities Research Center at Rice University.
