Description: The Association's Foreign Affairs Oral History Program was established in 1988 and is housed in the Lauinger Library of Georgetown University. The collection is comprised of oral histories taken from a number of projects, all concerning the experiences of those employed in diplomacy and consular affairs and their families. The oral history collection includes interviews done under the auspices of the Foreign Service History Center of George Washington University, which was amalgamated into the Foreign Service History Program, the Foreign Service Family Project, the Women Ambassadors' Project, the United States Information Agency Alumni Association Project, the Senior Officers' Project and others. The majority of these interviews were conducted by retired Foreign Service personnel on a volunteer basis, directed by the Oral History Program. The interviews are unclassified, and unless so marked are open for use by researchers. Most interviews have been transcribed and then returned to the person interviewed for editing. The transcript deposited in the Lauinger Library's Special Collections Division is the edited version, and is not a word for word rendition of the cassette tape. Tapes are available for auditing, if desired.
