Alumni Oral History Transcripts

Oral history is a method of collecting historical information through recorded interviews conducted by an interviewer with an interviewee who possesses firsthand knowledge of historically significant events. Oral history is a spoken remembrance reflecting the interviewee's memories, points of view, and personal opinions about events in response to the interviewer's questions. These interviews do not represent the final, verified, or complete narrative of the events under discussion.

The Lycoming College Archives-Snowden Library has gathered a collection of oral histories that are being both preserved and made accessible for use in future research and for members of the public.

Included in the Lycoming College Archives collection are a number of reel-to-reel audio tapes of various speakers at the College from the late 1950s through the early 1970s. A small sample of these tapes have been digitized to allow you to hear first hand some of individuals who were significant in the life of the College during that period.
