The Pacific Regional Humanities Center at the University of California, Davis, in
collaboration with the Middle Mountain Foundation, collected oral histories of landowners in the area of the
Sutter Buttes. The Sutter Buttes are a small mountain range located in the north Sacramento Valley of
California. The collection contains transcriptions of six oral histories as well as five of the original
recordings. Five of the six transcriptions are available in full text online through the California Digital
Library's eScholarship Repository.
The Pacific Regional Humanities Center (PRHC) was an initiative funded by the National Endowment for the
Humanities in 2002 and overseen by the UC Davis Humanities Institute. The PRHC was created to generate
humanities research and public programs for the Pacific United States and Territories: California, Oregon,
Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianas and emphasized the study of "place"
in its many dimensions. During 2005-2006, the PRHC, in collaboration with the Middle Mountain Foundation,
collected oral histories of landowners in the area of the Sutter Buttes. The Sutter Buttes are a small mountain
range located in the north Sacramento Valley of California.
