The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Composite oral history accessions

Repository: Gerald R. Ford Library

Collection Description (CRHP): See especially NIXON PRESIDENTIAL MATERIALS PROJECT: Interviews, 1974 and 1988. These are transcripts of selected "exit" interviews conducted with departing Nixon White House staff in 1974 and oral history interviews conducted in 1988 by the Nixon Presidential Materials staff. The interviews are a portion of a much larger collection belonging to the Nixon Project. They were reproduced for the Ford Library in the expectation that they overlapped the Ford administration in topics covered.

Of particular interest is a September 1974 interview with Bradley H. Patterson. The interview deals primarily with Patterson's role as an assistant to Leonard Garment during the Nixon administration, especially in the areas of civil rights, planning for the bicentennial, and concerns of Native Americans.

Collection Description (Extant): Transcripts and/or recordings of research interviews with former President Ford and others. The interviews were conducted and donated by various individuals and donated at various times. Interviews are arranged in order of receipt, and new interviews are added as they are received.

The Ford Library also holds many additional, separate collections of oral histories. Moreover, some collections of papers include occasional oral history material.
