Primary Research.

Kent has participated in archaeological digs from early Native American in California, to residential sites in New Orleans, and Civil War sites.
Interviews with the elderly
First-hand accounts of people who participated in the unfolding of American History in the twentieth century have been a positive benefit of Kent's work with Senior Citizens.  Kent takes an active interest, especially in stories of music, railroads and World War II.
Examination of historical documents and artifacts
As an active participant in many museum activities, Kent has been privileged to handle documents and artifacts that the public can only view from a distance.  This has immensely contributed to Kent's understanding of historical cultures.  Through Kent's music, Kent has met many private collectors who have enthusiastically shown their collection to him.
