Our Staff


Oral history is best done by people who enjoy people. Those who do oral history for a living, as we do, commit their careers to ensuring that the stories of people are heard and preserved. Our faculty, staff, and students in the Institute for Oral History are people just like that--people who believe in the power of individual experience for understanding the complexity of culture and community. We invite you to become acquainted.
