The Evolution of Sawtelle Oral History Project has conducted over 20 life history interviews of people who have experienced life in the Sawtelle area as it evolved from a small, neighborhood community into a thriving business district that is known today as “Sawtelle Japantown.”

We plan to utilize this oral history collection in educational documentary films and other interactive projects.
