The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Macon memories oral history project

Repository: Randolph-Macon College. McGraw-Page Library. Special Collections

Collection Description (CRHP): This collection includes an interview with the first African-America student to graduate from the college after spending four years there, Dennis Howard, as well as an interview with one of the college's earliest African-American students who later came back as a faculty member, Jerome Clayton Ross, R-MC Class of 1975.

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.
