Meet Your City Video Series

"Meet Your City" is a series of videotaped lectures and presentations on local history or nostalgic topics that were made primarily at the Turner-Dodge House and Heritage Center in Lansing between 1998 and 2004. The Turner-Dodge House and Heritage Center is part of the City of Lansing Parks and Recreation department. Sometimes videos credit the City of Lansing as a producer, or CITY-TV, the city's cable access channel. Many of the videos have no opening or end credits, and are simply casual videotaped recordings of presentations, while others have been more formally produced. In several cases, curator Elizabeth Homer or others introduce the speakers, but often there is no introduction. Some of the presentations include a question and answer segment at the end. The VHS and VHS-C recordings were digitally converted by the Forest Parke Library & Archives at CADL beginning in November 2016. MYC (Meet Your City) ID numbers assigned during the original project point to at least 57 videos having been created, although the numbering of the programs does not correspond with chronological order. The library holds MYC1-MYC17, MYC20-MYC21, MYC24-MYC28, and MYC30-MYC57. No administrative material is on file with these recordings.
