2. Oral History Projects, n.d., 1978-1994
Volume:4.20 cubic ft.


Oral History Projects is arranged alphabetically by project title and then by interviewee name.  This series includes a general index to many of the interviews.  Located in two card file boxes this index contains alphabetical listings by interviewer and narrator name, project name, and subject names.  Additionally, an accession log is located at the start of this series; it presents project descriptions and information on narrators and interviewers.  When available, background and planning materials are located before the narrators' files; these files offer overviews of interview topics.  This series contains support documentation for interviews including correspondence, narrator biographical data, legal releases, copyright information, interview schedules, users' guides to the interviews, and interview outlines.  Many of the narrators' interviews contain partial or complete transcripts of interviews. There is also collateral material for some interviews including reproductions of photographs, maps, brochures, newspaper articles, and personal effects such as photocopied diaries and letters.  In some instances, which are indicated by an asterisk, textual materials do not exist for narrators; the folder list indicates this and directs the researcher to the audiocassettes.  There are also a few cases where audiocassettes do not exist for narrators. When indicated by a double asterisk, please refer to the textual materials.
