Oral History Project
The Oral History Project has remained an important, ongoing activity of the Emeriti Society since 1994. The mission of the Project is to help preserve the history of the University of the Pacific by collecting conversations and recollections of university members from a variety of academic disciplines. The collection contains recordings and transcripts of interviews of former faculty, staff, and administrators.
The recordings and transcriptions of the individual interviews are available at the Holt-Atherton Special Collections in the basement of the University Library. Transcriptions of the interviews can be found and searched online at University of the Pacific Emeriti Society Oral History Collection.
Contact the Emeriti Society if you would like to nominate someone to be interviewed or if you would like to interview others.
