Food and Agriculture - Individual Interviews

Interviews related to the history of food, food systems, and agriculture have been a mainstay of the Oral History Center research agenda since the 1950s. Interviews focus on several interlocking thematic areas including: social and cultural foodways; restaurants and cuisine; wine and winegrowing; distilled spirits; small-scale and industrial farming; and agricultural economics and agricultural education. The interviews listed here typically were not conducted as part of an on-going project. Instead, the majority of these interviews document the singular contributions of individuals to food and agriculture in the United States and the larger global arena. Interviews are added to this subject catagory as they are completed.
