Archivists learn how to preserve audiovisual collections despite time, technology and tragedy
Jane Raup is one of those people responsible for telling the story of Hurricane Camille. It is a story she knows well. Raup is now the archivist for the museum. Several shelves in the archive room are dedicated to commemorating Camille. She keeps track of hundreds of pictures and handwritten notes from the disaster, including a box that holds original documents.

The Oakland Museum houses the Camille Resource Center, a place to further research and understanding of the historic event. The museum also hosts an exhibit that features the names of the people who died, a map of more than 5, landslides that ran through the county, and stories of heroes and recovery. From the practical to honoring lives lost, it is a story the historical society says cannot be forgotten.
