Kelley Slagle has lived in Hudson for about 3 months. She was born in southern California, went to college in San Francisco. She moved to New York City in 2001. She moved up from New York City seeking a more spacious apartment and a quieter lifestyle. She trained at the Institute for Culinary Arts in New York and eventually began to specialize in cocktails. She intends to start a cottage industry business making Shrubs which are drinks made from vinegar and fruits.
The interview touched on her life in California, growing up in a house without electricity, her decision to move East and her intentions for her life here in Hudson.
I was born in Scranton, Pennsyvania and currently live in New York City. My interest in oral history has been growing for a few years but until Oral History Summer School, I never acted on it. I am happy to work on building an Archive of voices of Hudson Residents in the 21st Century; providing living evidence and wisdom of those who are here to those who will honor them in the future.

Oral history is an iterative process. In keeping with oral history values of anti-fixity, interviewees will have an opportunity to add, annotate and reflect upon their lives and interviews in perpetuity. Talking back to the archive is a form of “shared authority.”
