Job Description

As part of a new exhibit on immigrants' stories, the Washington State History Museum is featuring a number of first-person historical accounts taken from memoirs, journal entries, and oral histories. This is an excerpt from the journal of a Swedish immigrant named Theodore, describing his family's migration in the 1880s. After originally settling in Michigan, they moved west seeking work at logging camps in Washington.

Because this will be played as part of a set along with other oral histories and interview footage, the reading should be natural and understated, not overly dramatic or theatrical. Playback will be accompanied by a photo of Theodore.

Theodore grew up largely in the US and spoke American English fluently, but a detectable Swedish accent is preferred.
