The Oregon State University Sesquicentennial Oral History Project

An Oral History of OSU

Over the course of its history, hundreds of thousands of men and women have worked together to build Oregon State University into an institution of global reach and impact. In celebration of the university's 150th birthday, this project presents the stories of alumni, faculty, staff, students, and supporters who have been touched by OSU's mission and who have helped to define its place as Oregon's preeminent public research university.

About the Project

A multi-year effort, the OSU Sesquicentennial Oral History Project was a collaborative enterprise that worked to document the university's history, culture and initiative through interviews with a diverse collection of individuals. The result is a major resource of significant interest to scholars, educators and Beaver Believers around the world.
