We are the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program — with more than 6,500 interviews in our archives, our team of student researchers, interns, volunteers, and staff are dedicated to gathering, preserving, and promoting living histories of individuals from all walks of life. We work to:

  • Make emerging collections accessible through written transcripts, digital archives, and podcasts
  • Engage in active research projects
  • Host public programs
  • Teach the craft of oral history
  • Build on the legacy of our founder, Dr. Samuel Proctor
