Oral history project

In 1994, several friends of the library began a project to preserve and make available the oral histories of individuals prominent in the history of Amherst College. Copies of the interviews on DVD are available for viewing in archives and special collections. In addition, selected excerpts from most of the interviews are available below. You may click on the names below to learn more about interviewees. Please address any questions and comments to smsheridan@amherst.edu.
