Memoirs  |  Personal Histories  |  Family Business & Organization Histories

Camden Writers, established in 1997, brings a wealth of experience to help individuals, families, businesses, and professional organizations create a historical legacy.

Every individual and every enterprise has a story worth safeguarding. It is important to step back and look at history, but people sometimes believe their story isn’t interesting enough or that it is immodest to focus on oneself. At Camden Writers, we see the memoir through a different lens.

Almost everyone, at some point in life, wants to know more about family, but all too often the first-person narrative is no longer available. Participants in a family business or a corporate entity are interested in the roots of entrepreneurship. There is great interest in how people lived and worked in a different era, the good times and the challenging times. People are curious about what those who came before thought and what inspired them.

The Camden Writers product, including both color and black-and-white photographs and

graphics, is traditionally a handsome book based on personal conversations with family

members, friends, and colleagues.  It is both a pleasure and an honor for us to assist others

in this process as stories long stored away are brought to life.

Recording the history of your life and work and providing an understanding of the context in which history played out is one of the greatest gifts you can give. It is your legacy.


There is a significant story to be written for all of us. Let us help.

Turn memories into memoirs.

My mother always said she believed that immortality lies in the memories of
those who love us and live on after us. But personal memories can only last
a generation or two. I think memory goes beyond the personal,
I think it lives on in the family stories we have to tell, and the stories
we hear about those who lived before us.  



What Mrs. Lin

can’t negotiate is

the widening gap

between herself and

her “American” family

What Phyllis’s

mother didn’t know

was that she was

headed into the

Mexican Revolution


We sat down at the

big kitchen table

and painstakingly

went through

boxes of pictures

In the theatre

“Patient Conversations”

explores the stories

of people


medical challenges

I wanted to stop and
a look at where
we were going before
the family destroyed
the business

Stories are a communal currency of humanity.
