Subject: Other CUNY Oral History Projects?
Date: Tue, 25 Nov 2003 19:25:01 -0500
From: Syd Lefkoe <sydqc@CUNYVM.CUNY.EDU>
We have begun an institutional Oral History Project here at Queens. More information on our project is on the web at http://www.qc.edu/techmuse/oh .
We would like to form a consortium and listing of CUNY Oral History Projects, or join one if one already exists. Have you started a project at your college? Is one of your fields of interest / expertise Oral History? Do you have an oral history component to your courses? Do you know someone else we should contact (include their email address)? Is there already a CUNY consortium of some sort? These projects and classes needn't be limited to institutional oral history projects. Please let me know - include details and web site URL if any.
There are 3 of us who are project directors of the QC Oral History Project:
1)Bette Weidman: Associate Professor, English Department; Program Director, American Studies
2) Syd Lefkoe: Associate Director, Financial Aid Services; curator, Voices of Old Technology- A Museum in the Making (see http://www.qc.edu/techexh)
3) Steve Barto: Rosenthal Library / College Archivist
Many thanks for your help.

oral history collections

I received your e-mail about oral history collections within CUNY. We have a large oral history collection (some 410 interviews) on Bronx neighborhoods. Our project was originally funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and interviews were gathered from 1982-1991. The collection is in the Special Collections division of the Lehman College Library. We also have about eight interviews on Lehman College conducted with Lehman faculty and adminsitrators.
I would be interested in meeting with a group interested in oral histories within CUNY and would appreciate your contacting me in the future.
