Oral Histories

Audio and Video Interviews: Inventory

When it became obvious in the early 1970s that the generation that had established the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry was thinning, an oral history program was begun to record on audio (and sometimes video) tape the reminiscences of many of these figures in the School's early history. Through 1992, some fifty oral histories had been completed. This program has continued intermittently over the last decade.

Ultimately, it is our plan to make these oral histories audible directly from this website. Until then, persons desiring to hear any of the oral histories listed below may request copies (at cost) in audio cassette or CD format from the Rare Books and Manuscripts section of Miner Library.
