GWU “Evolution of Washington’s Italian Community 1890-1980” Oral History Project

Finding Aid

Oral History Project 9

In 1984 George Washington University’s Center for Washington Area Studies conducted oral history interviews of which 3 were donated to the Washingtoniana division.  A grant from the D.C. Community Humanities Council provided funds for the project.

This oral history collection is limited and only occupies 1/12 a linear foot.  Topics include Italy, immigrating to the United States, parents, arriving and growing up and/or living in Washington, church life, work experience, and the Italian community.  The inventory below outlines the library’s holdings for each oral history interview.

The Center for Washington Area Studies donated the collection to the Washingtoniana division.

The D.C. Public Library holds copyright for the collection.  There are no restrictions on the use of this collection.
