The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

UCO oral history project

Repository: University of Central Oklahoma. Archives and Special Collections

Collection Description (CRHP): Gwen Mukes discusses her involvement in sit-ins in the 1950s.

Collection Description (Extant): The UCO Oral History project was conceived in the late 1980's by then university archivist Mary Bond. During her tenure as archivist Mrs. Bond collected over 60 interviews with UCO alumni, students, administrators, faculty and staff as well as prominent Edmond citizens.

In 2001 the project was expanded by the History and Geography Department under the leadership of Dr. Patricia Loughlin. The oral interviews that were collected under Dr. Loughlin's direction were part of a larger UCO history project that included the publication of a book updating the history of the University published during Oklahoma's Centennial titled, Building Traditions, Education Generations: A History of the University of Central Oklahoma. The oral interviews collected as part of this project were an effort to support the book. Taken individually, these interviews reflect the careers and interest of the interviewees; viewed collectively they constitute a narrative of the development of the University over time. As such, they form an invaluable part of the historical record of the University. Today we continue to collect these valuable histories.
