St. Alban’s “Super Sixties Program” Oral History Project

Finding Aid

Oral History Project 19

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
From 1976 – 1979 St. Alban’s Parish, in Washington, D.C., conducted over 100 oral history interviews of which 80 were from distinct individuals.  The project’s director was Sara Jenkins.  Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3-C made a grant to this project, part of which paid for the transcription of 6 interviews.

SCOPE AND CONTENT
This oral history collection occupies approximately 7-1/4 linear feet.  This projected conducted listening interviews in which older people were asked to review their lives and to pass on to others whatever they wished to share of their experience.  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.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
The St. Alban’s Oral History Project is described in Past Present:  Recording the Life Stories of Older People by Sara Jenkins.  National Council on Aging distributes the book.  The book contains excerpts from 15 interviews as well as a guide to conducting a listening project in any group of older people.

PROVENANCE
The National Council on Aging donated this collection to the Washingtoniana division in December 1996.

RESTRICTIONS
The D.C. Public Library does not hold copyright for the collection.  It is the responsibility of the researcher to obtain permission from the St. Alban’s Parish and/or the National Council on Aging in Washington, D.C., to publish or exhibit information. Reproduction of an oral history without a release is not permitted.
