Oral History Project Explores Dartmouth’s Diversity (The Boston Globe)


Dartmouth’s oral history project is documenting the stories of members of the Dartmouth community whose voices have not often been heard, The Boston Globe reports.

Although Dartmouth already had audio recordings of former presidents, Trustees, and administrators, Rauner Special Collections Library staff decided to expand the oral archives to include interviews with current and former faculty, students, and staff, according to the story.

“We wanted everybody to feel eligible, and I think it’s fair to say all of us in our lives at some point feel like we don’t belong … so we wanted to have a lens to look at this community through that would allow everybody to speak to that topic,” Oral History Project Editor Mary Donin says.
