The Columbia Center for Oral History, The New York Public Library, and The HIV Story Project Present
The Columbia Center for Oral History at Columbia University is the oldest and largest organized oral history program in the world. It was founded in 1948 by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Allan Nevins as a repository of political history and memory. With the creation of the office, Nevins helped establish oral history as a vital means of documenting personal and social change, and as a field unto itself. Our collection now contains nearly 8,000 taped memoirs, and nearly a million pages of transcript, covering such topics as the arts, government, social movements, philanthropy, and public health. Today, we continue to be recognized as one of the world’s leading centers on the practice and pedagogy of oral history. Scholars, students, writers, media-makers, advocates, and others come to OHRO from around the world to use our archives, conduct original research, and learn how to use oral history in their own work.
