The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

LBJ Library oral history collection

Repository: Lyndon Baines Johnson Library

Collection Description (CRHP): This repository houses numerous interviews pertaining to the Civil Rights Movement, including those with Johnson administration staffers, politicians and activists.

Collection Description (Extant): The LBJ Library Oral History Collection is composed of interviews conducted for the LBJ Library under four separate projects: those done under the auspices of the National Archives; the White House during the Johnson Administration; the University of Texas Oral History Project; and the LBJ Library Oral History Project. The names of interviewees who have participated in more than one of these projects are repeated on this list to highlight this fact. Names of those with multiple interviews done by the same project are repeated when terms of access to their various interviews vary. Otherwise, the name of an interviewee is listed once even though he or she may have given more than one interview.

Interviews which have been completed and accessioned into the Library's collection are followed by an alphabetical symbol in parentheses describing their status and terms of access. Those interviews without a symbol are in various stages of processing and therefore are not yet available for research unless specifically authorized by the interviewee.

Please note that special oral history interviews in the Library's custody are not included on this list with the exception of those that are available on the Library's website. These special interviews include those recorded by researchers, by federal departments preparing administrative histories, and interviews conducted by other oral history projects.
