The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Frederick Community College oral history collection

Repository: Catoctin Center for Regional Studies

Collection Description (Extant): The Frederick Community College Oral History Collection began as a Oral History Project began in the fall of 1997 as a class assignment for HI 214 'History of the Civil Rights Movement.' The idea was to introduce students to an important research tool and to help make history come alive. With its establishment in March 1998, the Catoctin Center used a School-to-Career grant to expand the Oral History Project for use in other modern U.S. history and honors courses. To date there are an estimated 46 interviews, with only 16 available with transcripts.

Access Copy Note: Some transcripts are available online.
