Oral History Holdings at MIT

Two links lead to oral histories held at MIT by the Institute Archives and Special Collections and the MIT Museum:

Oral Histories at MIT (A-M)

Oral Histories at MIT (N-Z)

The lists are arranged alphabetically by the last name of the interviewee. The word "Museum" in a description indicates that the oral history is at the Museum. The heading "MC" followed by a number or a number alone (e.g., MC 100 or 77-37) indicates that the item is at the Institute Archives. The lists include brief biographical information about some of the subjects of the oral histories. Collection of this biographical data is ongoing and more information will be added over time. Please note that these lists are large and take time to load.

Other oral history work, not represented on these lists, is under way currently at MIT. One such project is the Blacks at MIT Oral History Project. For further information on this project see The principal investigator for the project, Dr. Clarence G. Williams, recently published Technology and the Dream: Reflections on the Black Experience at MIT, 1941-1999, based upon this work. See for details.

The Lewis Music Library is also conducting a series of oral histories. Contact the Lewis Music Library staff at
