About the Exhibit

The New Haven Oral History Project produced Life in the Model City as a physical exhibit at the New Haven Colony Historical Society during the summer of 2004. The exhibit, in both its physical and online formats, was made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.
