Oral History Program (1964 - Present) | University of North Texas Special Collections
The Oral History Program was established by Dr. H. W. Kamp in 1964. He based many of the proceedures and policies for the new program on those of the Oral History Research Office at Columbia University. Dr. Ronald E. Marcello led the program from 1968 to 2005. The program is currently being directed by Dr. Todd Moye. The purpose of the program is to preserve, through recorded interviews, the memoirs of individuals who have been eyewitnesses to or participants in historic events.
