Conditions Governing Use
There were a number of organizations which were collecting oral histories, including the Indiana Division of the Indiana State Library, Indianapolis, IN. Tom Krasean was the first director, in 1967, of this statewide project to gather oral reminiscences of Hoosiers in all areas of activity. There are many oral histories, both audio recordings and printed transcripts, in the Rare Books and Manuscripts Division of the Indiana State Library. Other directors have included John Newman, Randall Jehs and Jerry Handfield.
The Indiana University Oral History Research Project and the project at DePauw (IN) University were among others working in this field.
The Oral History Association was founded in 1966 and is an international organization.
