Miriam Breckenridge Oral History
Breckenridge, Miriam 1915-1998.
[The Oral History Collection consists of taped interviews of long-time residents., Miriam Breckenridge was the originator of the oral history project at The Community Library in Ketchum. John Breckenridge, her husband, was a prominent sheepman operating between Twin Falls and The Sawtooth Valley, and she began by interviewing people who had been involved in the infancy of the sheep industry in Blaine County. This interview covers Miriam's memories of the sheep business and changes in the business through time as the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management placed restrictions on sheep grazing rights on public land and as over-grazing became a concern for government officials and environmentalists.]
