Community and Identity - Individual Interviews

The Oral History Center’s Community and Identity project contains a diverse range of individual oral histories, including interviews that were conducted during the first years of the OHC’s own history in the 1950s. The stories narrated in these interviews begin as far back as the late nineteenth century, and the project also contains a number of donated interviews and memoirs. Twentieth-century Russian and Hungarian communities are particularly well-represented in this project. Topics covered include war and military service, politics and communism, San Francisco culture, business, education, religious leadership and community life, law, and University of California history.
