College of Arts and Sciences faculty oral history project collection

Identifier: COU:4045

Scope and Contents

The Arts and Science Faculty Oral History Project contains audio tape interviews of retired faculty members. Some interviews also contain a transcript of the tape. The tape for John Little was inadvertently erased and therefore his autobiography is included in this collection. For Keith Porter, a video tape and transcript have been included instead of an audio tape.
