Roy Armstrong II came to Beaufort Community College in 1981 to teach English and to launch an oral history project. Students talked to people whose memories stretched back into an earlier time in coastal North Carolina and transcribed them. The result was a journal called LIFE ON THE PAMLICO. Thirty-eight issues have been published, each containing three or four oral histories illustrated with black-and-white photographs. The oral histories are available on the college website at CircaNCeast.beaufortccc.edu.
The fall of 1999 was a devastating one for the people of eastern North Carolina. A trio of hurricanes battered the region, particularly Hurricane Floyd, causing flood and storm damage to thousands of homes. The Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill collected a host of stories from eastern North Carolina residents about their experiences with the flooding caused by Hurricane Floyd and how neighbors and strangers came together.
