HUGH NIBLEY TAPES PROJECT UNDERWAY
A new project is underway to make archival copies, as well as copies for distribution, of many of Hugh Nibley's taped speeches.
F.A.R.M.S. has access to nearly 170 hours of Hugh Nibiey tapes, recorded on reel-ro-reel or cassette, from various sources. Under the direction of Russell Peek, an archival copy of each of these tapes is being made so that these valuable lectures can be preserved. In addition, we plan to provide cassette copies of many of these tapes for distribution. Since the 1988 church curriculum will focus on the Bcok of Mormon, we hope that many of these tapes can be made available to Sunday School teachers and students at that time.
Some tapes contain material never before published. Others show Nibley in a private setting, where he is much more open with his ideas. For example, one family home evening tape focuses on prayer. Another deals with faith. These tapes will be catalogued by subjects to coincide with the Collected Works. Finally, we hope to provide cassettes of Nibley's soon-to-be-available video-taped Pearl of Great Price class.
If you are interested in supporting this project financially, please let us know, for funds are limited. The cost of making archival copies of the first 170 hours of original tapes has been estimated at $1,000. Let us hear from you if you can help.
