The Southern California Journalism Oral
History Project Collection began in the mid-1970s. CSUN journalism professor Dr. Tom Reilly
organized the project to preserve the day-to-day experiences of working journalists,
particularly people who were not likely to write books about or maintain extensive diaries
or other records of their careers. In 2020, the collection was expanded to include
interviews with retired members of local media conducted by students of CSUN journalism
professor Stephanie Bluestein.
The library created this collection of materials for study and research.
