Oral History Projects

 

 

My interviews for oral history cover a range of subjects and purposes, but most are life histories.  As people interviewed gift their life stories, and they are always interesting, I like to think they will be shared. Most of the following recordings are intended to be accessible for other researchers, as indicated.
