SAVE IOWA STORIES
IOWA ROCK 'N ROLL MUSIC ASSOCIATION
Help us tell the incredible
stories of our Iowa Rock 'n Roll
Hall of Fame inductees!
We have embarked upon a new project for all of our Hall of Fame inductees, the Save Iowa Stories Database Project, where we will video each of our inductees and then implement a database format that will allow us to link this video to their biography, additional videos and photos.
Once completed, our intention is to make this database available beyond our museum’s touchscreens, sharing content across the world wide web and made available to everyone, everywhere. We also are working to get this cloud database linked to the Library of Congress, thus allowing genealogy searches to find our database when people are using software like ancestry.com.
Our goal is to capture these stories and save them forever. With over five hundred entities and over two thousand individual inductees in our Hall of Fame database, this is no small task and will be a multi-year undertaking.
This year’s inductees will be the first class whose stories will be captured for later editing and insertion into our database. If you or your family would like to contribute information or donate, both would be greatly appreciated. We thank the Okoboji Foundation for the first grant we received to begin this project.
"Our Hall of Fame inductees have a great story to tell for all generations."
