Description: This collection of interviews, conducted by the Office of Student Affairs in 1986, was used to produce Sixty Years of Achievement, a documentary film celebrating the University of Miami's 60th Anniversary. The tapes contain over sixty hours of footage that do not appear in the documentary, and cover topics as disparate as the founding of the university, campus life during the 1920s, WWII, and student activism during the turbulent 1960s and early 70s. Many of the interviews move beyond campus concerns, using the University as a window to understanding South Florida's history more broadly. Dennis Gaffney, a former University of Miami Office of Student Affairs employee, conducted most of the interviews.
