    Scope and Contents note

    The Stanford Oral History Project (SOHP), a joint effort of the Stanford University Archives and the Stanford Historical Society, began in 1978 as an extension of their efforts to collect, preserve and make available to researchers the historical record of the Stanford University community. These taped interviews and their transcriptions supplement the already strong collection of written and photographic materials in the University Archives, and provide a unique resource containing experiences and viewpoints not often found in traditional documents.
    The oral history interviews in the SOHP collection are carefully planned historical documents which we hope will serve a wide range of scholarly interests. Five additional sets of oral history interviews are listed separately: a set of interviews with members of the early Aurora newspaper collective; a set of interviews with participants in Stanford's Community Committee for International Students (CCIS); a set of interviews conducted by Joan Bromberg of the American Institute of Physics for the Laser History Project; a set of interviews with graduates of the Stanford School of Nursing; a set of interviews with Stanford-associated "Silicon Valley" scientists (a component of the Stanford and the Silicon Valley Project); and a set of interviews with family and friends of Dr. Robert Reid Newell, professor in the School of Medicine.
    For most of the interviews, a typed transcript, edited for accuracy by both interviewer and narrator but otherwise unchanged, is available.

    Arrangement note

    The interviews are arranged in seven series: 1. Stanford Oral History Project Inteviews; 2. Aurora Interviews; 3. Community Committee on International Studies Interviews; 4. Laser History Project Interviews; 5. Stanford Nurse Alumnae Interviews; 6. Silicon Valley Project Interviews; and 7. Dr. Robert Reid Newell Interviews.
