Oral Histories in Special Collections

Special Collections houses nearly one-thousand Oral Histories. These interviews provide a first-hand account of the events they portray and are fascinating sources for researchers. The majority of the interviews were conducted by Gettysburg College students and faculty members. However, many of the interviewees also came from Adams County, the surrounding counties, or were individuals somehow connected to Gettysburg College. Topics range from Gettysburg College and Adams County history to World War II and the Vietnam War.

Oral History transcripts are available in the Special Collections Reading Room. Please contact an archivist if you have questions about using the collection or locating a particular oral history interview.
