HIS 205 Oral History: Techniques and Research

Oral history is a technique for creating and preserving original information. It is both a research method and a teaching tool. Through informed and empathetic interviewing, we acquire information about families, individuals, and organizations. Conducted properly, oral history is a limitless technique for exploring and documenting the variety of human experiences. Local projects have included oral histories of well-known area residents, the paper industry, Holocaust survivors, Vietnam Veterans, World War II veterans, the Greek-American community, and York College.
