Grant goes Virtual at Oregon Historical Society website

I received and email from the producer of the Oregon Historical Society's "Windows on America" project where I voiced Ulysses S. Grant. He was happy to announce that the tour will be going virtual on their website as a 'web-tour" and would be including the Grant voice-over as part of the project.

It's funny, even though the producer described my interpretation of Grant's voice as right-up-there, I always wanted to go back and redo the part with the heretofore unread description of what Grant's voice sounded like to Mark Twain from his autobiography notes; " His voice was the soft, rounded, Ohio River accent to which my ears were earliest used to from my steam boating uncles and earliest heroes".

I did a somewhat standard crusty version, but with some nuanced channeling to give authenticity to the time and tenor to the moment.

Will be receiving the link shortly and will post it as soon as it's operational.
