The researchers' goal was to create a documentary base for understanding the history of African American life in the Jim Crow South. The archive resulting from their efforts contains more than 1,200 taped interviews recorded in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida. The interviews were structured as life histories and as such, each covers a wide range of topics. Nevertheless, groups of interviews often unite thematically across a region, and some basic issues relating to community life, politics, race-relations, and religion emerge across the collection as a whole. The life of mine workers, for example, figures prominently in interviews completed in Kentucky and Birmingham, Alabama; the impact of black educational institutions stands out in interviews conducted in Enfield, North Carolina; and the ambiguities of segregation at work in the ethnic montage that is Louisiana reveal themselves in interviews made in New Orleans. Overall the collection offers rich information on such topics as labor, religious life, survival strategies, migration patterns, family life, childhood, education, recreation, business, civil rights and politics.

China Policy and the National Security Council Oral History Washington, District of Columbia, United States. Over the past three decades, no area of U.S. foreign policy has been more dramatic than the opening and development of relations with the People's Republic of China. And on no policy subject has the National Security Council played a more central role. From Henry Kissinger's secret journey to Beijing in July 1971 to Anthony Lake's trip a quarter century later in the wake of military confrontation in the Taiwan Straits, the assistant to the president for national security affairs has personally played a leading role. All governments take it particularly seriously when the American president sends his personal aide to them on a negotiating mission.

Democratic Labor Party: an Oral History Macleod, Victoria, Australia, Australia. The Democratic Labor Party (DLP) fulfilled an important role in Australian political history.

Far from being the anti-union and narrow-minded reactionary party that it has been unfairly caricatured as, the DLP in fact operated according to social democratic principles which enabled it to make a positive and constructive contribution to Australian public policy in the period of its existence between 1955 and 1978. The DLP's historic roots went back to the Labor Party and the Australian union movement and the party's viability in part depended upon the principled support and commitment that it received from its membership.

The collection is comprised of oral histories taken from a number of projects, all concerning the experiences of those employed in diplomacy and consular affairs and their families.

Forrest C. Pogue Oral History Institute Collection Murray, Kentucky, United States.

This consisted of a number of interviews with the men and women involved in the TVA's work. Workers, wives, administrators, children growing up in the village, and others have been interviewed during the course of our work. [View Collection Details] [View Repository Details]

Frank Chin Oral History Collection Pullman, Washington, United States. The Frank Chin Oral History Collection consists of audio tape interviews, selected transcripts, and additional explanatory material. The interviews, all done either by Chin or Lawson Inada, are with Japanese Americans who were either native born, second generation Americans (Nisei), permanent U.S. residents born in Japan (Issei), or their family members. During World War II they became the focus of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066, issued on February 19, 1942. The result of Roosevelt's order was to strip the Nisei of their citizenship and both groups of their constitutional rights. Under the auspices of the War Relocation Authority, the Selective Service required both groups to answer a questionnaire that, among other things, questioned their willingness to serve in the U.S. military and their willingness to repudiate their allegiance to Japan. One group of Japanese American resisters became known as the "No-No Boys" because they answered negatively to both these questions. The people interviewed in these tapes were directly or indirectly affected by these events and they offer a variety of perspectives on their significance. During World War II, roughly 110,000 Japanese Americans were imprisoned in U.S. government-run camps known as relocation centers. Other Japanese Americans willingly served in the U.S. military during World War II. [View Collection Details] [View Repository Details]

Frontier Service Nursing Oral History Lexington, Kentucky, United States. The Frontier Nursing Service grew out of a need for primary health care in the mountains of eastern Kentucky.

Until this time, most medical treatment was limited to the skills of persons with knowledge of herb and folk remedies.

International Economic Policymaking and the National Security Council Oral History Washington, District of Columbia, United States. From its inception, the National Security Council has addressed economic issues: two of its first four meetings, held in 1947, focused on exports to the USSR. But while trade and finance have been key components of U.S. foreign policy, they also have had substantial impact on citizen welfare at home. This impact has increased with the growing internationalization of the U.S. economy. Hence, from the early 1970s, NSC jurisdiction over international economic matters has been challenged by individuals and institutions concerned with domestic economic policy. In the Clinton administration, this was manifested by the creation of the National Economic Council paralleling the NSC, and by the coordination of international economic policy through a combined staff reporting to the national security adviser and the national economic adviser.

Lutheran Family Folklore/Folklife Oral History Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States. The purpose of this oral history project, conducted by Roma Kempe, was to determine how the families of Albuquerque's St. Paul Lutheran Church have struggled to preserve their culture. The families are descendants of Norwegian, Swedish, German, Danish, and Finnish cultures who, during the earlier part of the twentieth century, were all members of the Lutheran Church. A problem arose in the church over what language the sermons and prayers should be conducted in. The Church wanted to "assimilate" the different ethnic groups and provide English services because many of the children did not understand the languages of their parents. As a result, language and culture began to be over-taken by the new American culture. Many churches tried to maintain their ethnicity, but during World War I, legislation was passed prohibiting the public use of foreign languages, especially German. This further limited the Church members' ability to maintain their ethnic traditions. [View Collection Details] [View Repository Details]

Military History Oral History Program College Station, Texas, United States. This project began in 1980 with a grant from the Association of Former Students to interview alumni who became general officers and retired in Texas. Originally, it was entitled "Aggies to Generals". Interviews with the A&M generals are oral biographies and explore a number of issues: family life and early years, education at Texas A&M, Corps of Cadets, and ideas concerning leadership, women and blacks in the service, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, and change in the military in recent U.S. history.

Mount Vernon Oral History Collection Mount Vernon, Virginia, United States. The reminiscences of people associated with the Washingtons and Mount Vernon have been an important tool in the restoration and interpretation of Mount Vernon for nearly two centuries. In the 19th century, for example, many visitors to the estate learned about George Washington and 18th-century life through conversations with former slaves who had labored for him for many years and were freed by the terms of Washington's will. From the time the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association took over management of the estate -- just prior to the Civil War -- up to the present day, the recollections of former residents and employees, whether free or enslaved, have proved invaluable for compiling a full picture of life at this historical site. An oral history project was begun several years ago to capture the memories of both Vice Regents and long-time employees. A small collection of tapes, CDs, and transcripts is available for researchers with a special interest in Mount Vernon in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service Oral History Collection Norfolk, England, United Kingdom. For the museums service reminiscence work is a two-way process. The memories of everyday life are invaluable sources of information which help us to more truthfully reflect social history in exhibitions. When taped and broadcast alongside museum objects or used in other ways to aid interpretation, they provide a fascinating insight into the history of an era or a place. Collecting oral history also enables us to involve people in museum activities, through their contribution to exhibition and education programmes. An example of such work is the Great Yarmouth Museums millennium collecting project, designed to produce a snapshot of everyday life in the Borough during 2000. Community groups and business organisations have been invited to fill a cardboard box with material representative of everyday life and associated oral "history" has been recorded. As completed boxes arrive back at the museum offices they will be displayed in the foyer at the library. This will be updated monthly and the whole project will culminate in 2001 with a touring exhibition of all the collected material. As well as providing the museums with new collections it is hoped this project will encourage a greater sense of ownership from Borough residents towards their museums. In general, oral history collection often means the museum is donated objects and photographs, builds new audiences and supporters and helps us to achieve a positive profile in the older community.

Thus, in 1983, the North Valley Oral History Project was born with three main goals: to present a picture of life in the North Valley before its transition from a rural to a suburban community, to record oral histories for present and future populations of the North Valley, and to create a body of primary source material about the North Valley for scholarly research.

It became increasingly important to preserve Oberlin's historic legacy as an interracial town hospitable to fugitive slaves, stopover point on the Underground Railroad, and place for a substantial number of African Americans to permanently reside.

REgenerations Oral History Project Los Angeles, California, United States. REgenerations is a collaborative oral history project which will explore and document the impact of the World War II exclusion and incarceration of Japanese Americans in four Nikkei communities in the United States: Los Angeles, San Jose, Chicago, and San Diego. The main focus of the interviews will center on the period of resettlement between 1942-1965. This "resettlement" era is critical to understanding the full impact of the exclusion and incarceration experience, yet it has been the subject of relatively little scholarly inquiry. Though the end of war brought "freedom" from the confines of America's concentration camps, Japanese Americans returned to the same prejudice and discrimination they had left in 1942. Naturalization laws, alien lands laws, "anti-miscegenation" laws, housing restrictions, and immigration laws continued to exclude Japanese Americans from taking their rightful place in American society. REgenerations will explore the struggle of Japanese Americans to overcome these institutional and social barriers and restore their family and community life which had been fragmented by the wartime experience. Transcripts are available online. [View Collection Details] [View Repository Details]

Role of the National Security Adviser Oral History Washington, District of Columbia, United States. Since the Kennedy administration, the assistant to the president for national security affairs (a.k.a.

Presidents clearly want both, but the roles are in tension. Specifically, an assistant who pushes his own views too strongly risks losing the trust of a secretary of state (or defense) who has a different opinion. Some national security advisers have balanced these roles adroitly. Others have not, generating discord within the president's senior advisory team.

South African Institute of Race Relations Oral History Project Durban, South Africa. 1982 the oral history project of the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) was established with three full time members of staff and a part time secretary. Two types of oral evidence were collected. The first of these were interviews with individuals who had been involved in political and labour organisations which formed part of the movement of resistance to the South African government in the 1940s and 1950s. These interviews were not grouped or organised around specific themes, and interviewers were randomly selected. The interviews were done to record and preserve the testimony of activists from a range of organisations. This type of interview was categorised as archival. The second category of interviews was organised around more specific themes. Evidence was collected from groups of people involved in a particular event or doing the same kind of work. A common aim of this project was to make the testimony collected available to a wider audience. This finally took the form of booklets, designed to be accessible to a wide range of people.

South Asians in Philadelphia, 1996: Reflections on an Oral History Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The Balch Institute for Ethnic Studies undertook an oral history project of South Asians in the greater Philadelphia area during the summer of 1996. This was the Institute's first such attempt with American immigrants of Asian heritage and a pilot project for a larger undertaking in the mid-Atlantic states, which would cover later immigrants, second-generation South Asian Americans, and less-visible communities, such as gays and lesbians. Eric Pumroy, director of the Balch Library, won a ten-week grant from the Samuel Fels Fund, which led to the appointment of Sufia Uddin as graduate intern for the project. Rani Sinha, volunteer coordinator, wrote the questionnaire, drawing on the humanistic impulses of the Federal Writers' Project, directed by Benjamin Botkin from 1936 to 1940. Uddin had primary responsibility for finding and interviewing individuals who had arrived in the U.S. as adults before 1975 from a wide representation of South Asian sociocultural backgrounds, as well as a variety of American socioeconomic backgrounds.

Interviews with flood victims, relief workers, ministers, farmers, farm workers, small-business owners, environmental monitors, and political leaders in eastern North Carolina about the devastating flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd.

U.S.-Japan Project Oral History Program Washington, District of Columbia, United States. The U.S.-Japan Project initiated an oral history program to conduct interviews with former Japanese and American officials who were closely involved with the management of relations between the two countries since 1960. The impetus for the program came from the Project's Advisory Panel, which in its initial meetings identified the need for such a program, in light of the lack of declassified official documents in Japan. Though Japan has recently passed a Freedom of Information Act, its impact upon scholarly access to significant Japanese official records remains to be determined, leaving such interviews a critical source of information on the making of foreign, defense and economic policies within the Japanese government. The U.S.-Japan Project's Oral History Program was headed in Japan by Professors Makoto Iokibe of Kobe University (a member of the Project Advisory Panel) and Koji Murata, formerly at Hiroshima University and currently at Doshisha University (a Project Research Fellow), who worked with other scholars associated with the project to conduct these interviews and prepare the original transcripts.
