Collection Description (Extant): The Macon Memories Oral History Project captures the stories of faculty, staff, and others with a long-time affiliation with Randolph-Macon College. This project records the personal reflections and experiences of individual people, in the belief that the collective memories will shed broader light on the College's history. This project was created with seed money from the Board of Associates.
This project is the work of Lynda Wright, Assistant Professor and Head of Technical Services, McGraw-Page Library.
Macon Memories is an active oral history project in which interviews and transcriptions are added continuously.
