Conditions Governing Access

These interviews are unprocessed. To protect sensitive content, while also ensuring that the interviews are preserved for the historical record, some oral history interviews in our collections may be restricted (closed for an agreed-upon number of years), or may require permission from the narrator or interviewer before allowing a researcher access to a restricted interview. If interviews are open for research, production of use copies is required before access will be granted; this may delay research requests. Advanced notice is required. Please contact for further information.


Interviews are not arranged.
