Oral History Office


Since the library's founding, Hagley has collected the stories of individual people through oral history interviews. Our collections include over a thousand hours of audio recorded as far back as the 1950s and as recently as this year. They cover subjects including daily life, industrial labor, work and gender, technological innovation, marketing, transportation, computing, industrial design, food and drink, and the regional history of the Mid-Atlantic.
