Testimonial from Clients

Porteus “P. R.” Burke, President, Vermilion Corporation

“When the Board of Directors at Vermilion Corporation inquired about hiring a professional historian to write a history of the company, one name consistently came up from referrals and that was Jason Theriot. Over the course of the two-year-long project, Dr. Theriot proved to be an eager and competent researcher, and his easy style of narrative writing made the final product very readable. He is a natural born historian who is well versed in the techniques necessary to retrieve both written and anecdotal evidence in order to compile an accurate history.”

Testimonial from Clients

Deborah Lattimore, owner, Technitype Transcripts

“As the owner of a transcription company specializing in oral history since 1982, I have worked for hundreds of oral historians. Over the years, I have transcribed several hundred interviews for Jason Theriot. He consistently upholds every attribute required to be an outstanding oral historian: commitment to the principles of scholarship, a deep respect for each interviewee, meticulous preparation, has an empathetic attitude, and asks creative and probing questions. Jason’s personality, with a wonderful Louisiana flavor, is such that he brings to each interview his unique ability to put interviewees at ease with his friendly tone and delightful sense of humor. He fulfills in every way his stated mission to make history by preserving it through oral history.”
