    Stanford Historical Society Oral History Program Interviews (SC0932). Department of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford, Calif.

    Scope and Contents note

    The Stanford Historical Society's Oral History Program explores the institutional history of the University, with an emphasis on the transformative post-WWII period, through interviews with leading faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and others. The project furthers the Society's mission "to foster and support the documentation, study, publication, and preservation of the history of the Leland Stanford Junior University."
    Like any primary source material, oral history is not intended to present the final, verified, or complete narrative of events. It is a unique, reflective, spoken account, offered by the interviewee in response to questioning, and as such it may be deeply personal. By capturing the flavor of incidents, events, and personalities, the oral history approach provides details and viewpoints that are not often found in traditional records.
    Transcripts in this collection are lightly edited by program staff and by Interviewees to correct grammar and occasional inaccuracies. Audio, however, is not edited. As a result, transcripts do not match recordings verbatim.


    The materials are arranged in nine series: Series 1. Alumni Interviews; Series 2. Artists Interviews; Series 3. Athletics Hall of Fame Project; Series 4. Diversity Project Interviews; Series 5. Faculty and Staff Interviews; Series 6. Founding Grant Project Interviews; Series 7. Peace Corps 50th Anniversary Oral History Project; Series 8. Stanford Presidential Families Project; Series 9. Stanford Arts Initiative Project.
