The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Oral history collections

Repository: Tempe History Museum

Collection Description (Extant): In 1970, members of the Tempe Historical Society began taping interviews with some of the oldest long-time residents of Tempe. This effort to preserve the community's remembered history was bolstered by an intensive oral history project funded by the City of Tempe in 1987. Volunteers and interns under the direction of Dr. Kristina Minister conducted twenty interviews, which were recorded on both videotape and audio cassettes, and were fully transcribed. In 1992, the Tempe Oral History Project was reestablish as an ongoing function of the Tempe History Museum. Since 1992, interviews have been recorded on audio cassettes only.
