Collection Name: Food and Drug Administration Oral History Program
Repository Name: U.S. Food and Drug Administration. History of Medicine Division [Repository Details]
Repository Location: Bethesda, Maryland, United States
URL: http://www.fda.gov/oc/history/oralhistories/default.htm
Material Formats: [3 documents with text]
Dates Spanned: 1970-
Description: The oral history program at FDA, which began in the 1970s, has thus far generated approximately 150 oral histories. The interviews, by and large, have been conducted by part-time agency retirees, individuals who have spent their entire careers in FDA and who share similar experiences with those they interviewed. The resulting dialogues provide personal perspectives on FDA policy, discussion of key regulatory events in FDA's history, and offer candid evaluations of top-level FDA and HHS managers--insights that might not easily be discerned from the official records of the time.
