Description: The University Commons Oral History Project was conceived by Professor Alison Bell, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Washington and Lee University. A 1991 graduate of W&L, Professor Bell wanted to document the Commons during its inception and to capture people’s thoughts on the project in their own words. W&L students Imran Naeemullah ’05, Sean Devlin ’04, and Emily Tyson ’04 participated in this effort by studying oral historical methods with Professor Bell, and then conducting and transcribing interviews.
