University Archives Tape Collection

This grouping of interviews is largely undescribed, except for a listing of the individuals interviewed. Most of the interviewees appear to have been students, faculty, or staff at the University of Maryland, College Park. There are no transcripts or any other finding aids to the contents of the interviews, which are on reel-to-reel tape. A very high percentage of these oral histories are not open for research.

University Archives Oral History Transcripts Collection

This grouping consists solely of transcripts. Many of the interviews are University of Maryland, College Park-related and a listing of the interviewees is available. The access status of these items is unclear at present.

Maryland Manuscripts

The Maryland Manuscripts collection consists of a diverse array of materials, including letters, diaries, printed ephemera, and legal records. The twenty-nine oral histories in this grouping date from 1926 to 1981. Included are interviews with graduates of the Maryland Agricultural College and the University of Maryland and various other citizens of Maryland; many of the interviews focus on life here at the university. These interviews primarily exist in transcript form but in some cases corresponding reel-to-reel tapes do exist. There is no finding aid to the contents of these transcripts. They are completely open for research.
