The Elbow Park Oral History Project was established in Calgary, Alberta in 1999 by the Elbow Park Residents Association, to record the memories of early residents in the community. The association hired historian David Mittelstadt to undertake the work, and between February and August 1999 he interviewed 30 long-time residents of the district. In 2002 he completed outlines for each interview, which include biographical information on each person interviewed, plus summaries of the contents.
