Welcome to the Institute for Oral History

Through dynamic, recorded interviews, oral history preserves the stories of individuals who helped create the fabric of history and whose lives, in turn, were shaped by the people, places, events, and ideas of their day.


The Institute for Oral History has recorded and preserved oral histories since 1970, earning along the way a strong reputation for multidisciplinary outreach to both academic scholars and community historians by providing professional leadership, educational tools, and research opportunities. 

The Baylor Libraries continue to support our students and faculty as we keep one another safe and healthy during the ongoing pandemic. While Moody and Jones Libraries re-opened on Monday, August 10, the Institute for Oral History remains closed. If you need to access to our resources please contact us by emailing Visit to access online librarian assistance and additional remote resources.
