Voices of Oregon Agricultural College

This exhibit consists of a series of interviews conducted primarily in 1979 with a collection of individuals who maintained a connection to Oregon Agricultural College, as Oregon State University was known until 1927. The majority of these interviews were captured by staff working at the Horner Museum, which resided on the Oregon State campus for seventy years.

From 1975 to 1992, the museum provided support for a vibrant oral history program that collected the stories of individuals who were important to campus life and, indeed, to the fabric of Oregon on multiple levels. Read today, the narratives offered in this exhibit by alumni, retired faculty, and more casual acquaintances of OAC, stand as just one example of the richness, vision and lasting value of the museum's oral history work.
