From the Editor:

Welcome to Poughkeepsie Q&A, or PQ&A for short! This oral history program provides longtime City of Poughkeepsie residents the opportunity to tell their story, and the city’s, to the general public. See our “About” page to learn more. Click here for our email address.

Poughkeepsie Q&A is made possible through the generosity of the Dutchess County Community Grants Fund of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley. Thank you to  The Art Effect for its partnership and to the Dutchess County Historical Society for hosting the program.
