    Biography/Administrative History

    The majority of the oral histories were created after 1990 when the Department of the History of Health Sciences inaugurated a Campus Oral History Project, designed to interview crucial eyewitnesses to UCSF's development in the postwar years. Interviews were designed to be thoroughly based upon extant archival documents and placed in the context of state, federal and national developments in health sciences. In 1994, the project became a full-fledged Oral History Program, and continues to utilize a variety of funding sources to conduct research and create documentation. The interviews were conducted by Nancy Rockafellar, Ph.D and Sally Hughes, Ph.D.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    63 oral histories covering a variety of topics in the history of UCSF and the History of Health Sciences including UCSF Surgery in the Postwar Years, the Laboratory of Experimental Oncology, Bioengineering, the development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Diversity in U.S. Medical Schools, and the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco. Most of the collection is published material, but there are some unpublished manuscripts and AV materials.
