Collection Details


Collection Name: University of the West Indies Oral History Project
Repository Name: University of the West Indies. Faculty of Humanities and Education, Projects Office [Repository Details]
Repository Location: Bridgetown, Barbados
URL: http://www.cavehill.uwi.edu/fhe/histphil/History/ResearchProjects.htm
Description: The objective of the project is to locate in Barbados most, if not all, the major sources for the study of Barbados History. To this end each of the institutions committed a portion of its annual budget to the purchase of microfilm copies of a variety of documents which were located in foreign repositories. These documents included Colonial Office Correspondence, Barbadian newspapers, plantation accounts, planters' correspondence. It is hoped that additional funding from either the Barbados Government or international agencies will allow this project to be completed within the next few years. It is also hoped to extend the project, in a more limited form, to some of the records of some of the other Eastern Caribbean territories. The project is directed by a Committee representative of the participating institutions.
