The following oral history is the result of a recorded interview conducted by a CSUMB student. The audio and draft transcript have not been edited for accuracy. This interview is part of the Oral History Community Memory Archive. The researcher is asked to bear in mind that they are listening to an original recording, and reading a verbatim transcript of the spoken word, rather than written prose.


Terry Blum, born in Los Angeles, California on October 2nd, 1941, and moved to Monterey County in 1972 because she wanted to leave. So she packed her bags with her husband and kids and came here. While here she would become involved with the Monterey County Theatre Alliance, from working in the box office selling tickets to being invited to attend a board meeting, and by the end of the meeting being offered a secretary position. She is not only passionate for volunteering with the Alliance but is also involved in Rainbow Speakers, showing an intense passion for helping the LGBTQ+ community She’s shown a vast knowledge and deep passion for the art and she wishes for that to continue on and maybe the younger generations get involved as well.
