About this collection

The Jeffersonville Township Public Library History Collection includes materials relating to the 1937 Ohio River Flood and other aspects of Jeffersonville Township, Clark County, Indiana, history. The core of this collection consists of interviews with survivors of the 1937 Flood, created in the mid 1980's with a grant from Indiana Humanities. The creator, former Jeffersonville Township Public Library reference librarian Steven Day, arranged for the interviews, and along with historian Carl Kramer, used snippets from the interviews in a documentary film and accompanying book, both titled Mud, Sweat, & Tears. Before their inclusion on Indiana Memory, the taped interviews have never before been available to the public in their entirety.

The materials were digitized with a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services and administered by the Indiana State Library.
