The Veterans History Project

Veterans History Project

The Alliance partners with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project to capture and preserve the personal recollections of area veterans and of civilians who have supported America's war efforts, providing services, supplies, and expertise in conducting oral histories. Copies of videotaped interviews are provided to the subjects and to the Library of Congress for its permanent collection. Master copies are also archived in Meyer Library for local access and use. We now have more than 400 interviews on file in Meyer Library. http://library.missouristate.edu/archives/speccoll/m013.htm

You can learn about the Library of Congress project and also obtain instructions for conducting your own interview at www.loc.gov/vets. The local archive may be viewed at Meyer Library or by clicking on Meyer Library Archive.
