The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Montgomery County Historical Society oral history program

Repository: Montgomery County Historical Society (Md.)

Collection Description (Extant): The Oral History Program of the Montgomery County Historical Society was launched in October of 1974, under a grant from the Maryland Bicentennial Commission and the Woman's Community Club of Kensington. The purpose of the Oral History Program was to augment the written history of the county, state, and nation as recalled by the people of Montgomery County, and to establish an ongoing oral history program as part of MCHS. Over the last 25 years, the oral history collection has grown to include interviews conducted by other historical and educational groups in the county. Today the collection contains roughly 50 interviews conducted for the historical society and donated transcripts by local groups. Topics found in the collection include community history, politics, agriculture, mills, public health & medicine, religion, social services, children's literature, business, education, civil rights, and theater.
