Oral History Project 7

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
In March 1983 Capital Children’s Museum in Washington, D.C., conducted approximately 39 oral history interviews of which the Washingtoniana division has resources available for 35.  The project’s director was Tom Lane.  Adolescents conducted the interviews.

SCOPE AND CONTENT
This oral history collection occupies approximately 3 linear feet.  The project focused on the childhood experiences of adults over 60.  The inventory below outlines the library’s holdings for each oral history interview.  The timed indexes offer an encapsulated version of topics discussed during specific periods of the taped interviews.

PROVENANCE
The Capital Children’s Museum donated this collection to the Washingtoniana division.

RESTRICTIONS
The D.C. Public Library does not hold copyright.  It is the responsibility of the researcher to obtain permission from the Capital Children’s Museum in Washington, D.C., to publish or exhibit information. Reproduction of  an oral history without a release is not permitted
