Dr. Howkins and I conducted oral history interviews with both American and New Zealander Dry Valleys scientists from August to November of 2014. Our goal in collecting these interviews was to catalog and compare the experiences scientists have had working in the Valleys over the last fifty years. Specifically we looked at their recollections on environmental policy, the international political atmosphere, the changes in how science has been done since the 1950s, and the overall culture of the Valleys.
