Description: The Oral History Program conducts oral history interviews and oversees projects that focus on the history of La Crosse and contiguous areas. It places special emphasis on the five counties served by the UW-La Crosse Area Research Center (Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau, and Vernon counties). The current collection and interviewing program focuses on two major themes: community and the history of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The collection is regionally and nationally significant in several areas including Hmong refugee experience; European ethnic groups; turn of the century small city manners and daily life; Midwestern rural life and culture; women’s experience; and the UW-La Crosse. During the course of the grant, 300 interviews were cataloged and entered into the Murphy Library online catalog. They are fully searchable by author, subject, keyword, date, format, and other criteria at: http://library.uwlax.edu/. An in-house guide for cataloging oral history material was also developed during the of the grant. Murphy Library staff will catalog new additions to the oral history collection according to these procedures.
