This comprehensive oral history bibliography was developed for the public’s use by the Columbia University Center for Oral History in 2009 by Project Coordinator Elizabeth Grefrath. Research Assistants Kaley Bell and Jared Rosenfeld generously assisted on this project. Bibliographic citations were developed through a process of cataloguing office-housed articles.

The Columbia University Center for Oral History is one of the world’s leading centers for the practice and teaching of oral history. Our archive, located in the Columbia University Libraries and open to the public, holds more than 8,000 text and audio interviews on a wide variety of subjects. Our mission is to record unique life histories, documenting the central historical events and memories of our times, and to teach and do research across the disciplines.
