Each year since 1971 the Institute for Oral History has sponsored oral history research for Baylor University faculty members. Faculty Research Fellows record oral history interviews with individuals in their specific fields of interest. Fellows use the information gained in interviews to enhance publications on their topics in scholarly articles, papers, and monographs. The recordings and transcripts from their interviews become part of the permanent oral history collection of the university.
During the 2010 roundtable, faculty fellows Katie Edwards, Sheila Gloer, and Jerold Waltman discussed ways their oral history research contributed to their scholarship. Information was available for faculty members applying for the 2011-2012 fellowships. Learn more.
