About the project
The Oral History Center has taken the project of documenting the history of the University of California seriously since the inception of the Center in 1954. Moreover, the history of education and educational institutions more broadly has remained of keen interest to the Center. The project Education and University of California — Individual Interviews largely contains brief oral histories as well as longer life history interviews not otherwise part of a specific interview project. Instead, the majority of these interviews document the singular contributions of individuals to the University of California and education in the United States and the larger global arena. Interviews are added to this subject category as they are completed.
Additional oral history interview projects with substantive content on the history of education and the University of California include:
