Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Purdue Archives & Special Collections Oral History Program Collection (2006-present; 4.1 cubic feet) was created in 2006 to a way to assist in the documentation of the history of Purdue University and its schools, departments, athletics, and student life. The collection consists of transcripts of oral history interviews, and the media they were captured on: audio cassette, audio cd, vhs tape, digital recorder, and DVD. Currently, there are not transcripts for each interview.

This is an active collection and will be frequently added to on an ongoing basis.
