Oral histories offer valuable insight into the life of an institution and often “fill the gaps,” providing useful information that other written sources miss. Oral histories provide answers to institutional history questions, offer an innovative method to connect with faculty members, and supply an unconventional way to bring the historical record to other people who are interested in the institution, which can help strengthen fundraising activities.

This program is sponsored by the LHRB-SIS.
