GIA Launches Oral History Project
The Gemological Institute of America is taping an "oral history" of the diamond and gem industry.
Interviewer Dona Mary Dirlam, GIA Chief Librarian, and GIA Video Director Pedro M. Padua Jr., have interviewed over 20 diamond and jewelry leaders.
These include Richard Liddicoat father of modern gemology and the GIA Diamond Grading system and Joseph Schlussel of the Diamond Registry.
The tapes will become part of the Cartier Archives at the GIA Library. Excerpts will be used in GIA educational courses.
Feel free to suggest industry veterans for this project by contacting Dona Mary Dirlam at 800-421-7250.
