Description: The Zach S. Henderson Library Oral History Collection was started by the Georgia Southern College History Department in the 1970's. While several of the early interviews were done by history professors, including Dr. Walter J. Fraser, Dr. R. Frank Saunders and Dr. George A. Rogers, the vast majority of interviews done before 1992 were performed by Mrs. Esther Mallard. The oral history program went dormant in the mid-1990's after Mrs. Mallard retired, but was rejuvenated by Dr. Delma E. Presley and Dr. Daniel Good with the implementation of such projects as "Our Home Town Heroes" (a project gathering oral histories of Bulloch County's World War II veterans) in 1999. Other active participants in these projects included graduate student Linda Awe and Henderson Library's own Susan Moody, Library Assistant II in Collection & Resource Services and Special Collections. This database is the result of Ms. Moody's efforts to organize and catalog this important collection so that researchers can take advantage of its bounty.
