Dr. Benjamin Luft Discusses 9/11 Oral Histories at Library of Congress
The LOC’s American Folklife Center Will Serve as a Repository of the Oral Histories 

Nov 1, 2011 – 1:59:09 PM

STONY BROOK, N.Y., November 1, 2011 – Benjamin J. Luft, M.D., Edmund D. Pellegrino Professor of Medicine at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, and Medical Director of Stony Brook’s World Trade Center Health Program, will present “We’re Not Leaving: Responders Oral Histories Redefine 9/11,” at the American Folklife Center at The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., on November 10. The Center will serve as the repository for oral histories of 9/11 first responders from around the country, which are being recorded and filmed by Dr. Luft and the WTC Health Program staff as the Remembering 9/11 oral history project. The lecture will be held in the Mary Pickford Theater, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.

Materials describing the Remembering 9/11 project and ways to participate will be available at Dr. Luft’s presentation, which is part of the Benjamin A. Botkin Folklife Lecture Series.

Dr. Luft’s oral histories are part of a larger World Trade Center History Project at Stony Brook’s WTC Health Program and has served as the basis for a documentary created in collaboration with public television stations WLIW21 and WNET13, as well as the independent documentary film, “9/11: An American Requiem,” which debuted at the Stony Brook Film Festival last July. On September 11, 2011, Dr. Luft and some first responders who are part of the oral history project were featured on “60 Minutes.”
Stony Brook’s WTC Health Program consists of clinics in Suffolk and Nassau counties on Long Island, and King’s County of Brooklyn. The clinics provide medical monitoring and treatment for all covered WTC-related conditions. More than 20 physical and medical conditions have been identified as related to work at Ground Zero. Additional Programs are located throughout New York and New Jersey. For more information about the consortium and program, see the WTC Health Program.

Dear Friend of Stony Brook,

Was it the lightning strike of an idea or a beautiful accident? Whatever the spark, with the first stone tools we took our destiny into our hands. How did this idea occur to our ancestors, and what was its impact on the early human experience?

Join him as he demonstrates the ancient technology of making stone tools—right on the Chicago Cultural Center stage—and explains how it allowed our ancestors to eke out a better life.
