Oral Histories


Oral histories provide important personal accounts of historical events. Over 100 oral histories are available on audio cassette in Perry Library's Special Collections. The majority of these materials are interviews with former and present administrators, faculty, and staff of Old Dominion University, compiled during research on various stages in the university's history. Additional interviews were conducted with members of the Tidewater community and others. More interviews will be added as they are conducted.
