About this collection

Indiana State Library 

 

This collection comprises many oral histories from the Indiana State Library Rare Books and Manuscripts Division, which were recorded during an extensive oral history project with hundreds of Hoosiers from around the state during the 1970s and 1980s. Those Indiana natives who contributed to the project included civil servants, educators, correctional employees, journalists, religious leaders, engineers, musicians, war veterans, and other public figures, who shared rich experiences on the topics of Indiana politics, Prohibition, the Great Depression, the Ku Klux Klan, Hoosier authors, state prisons, agriculture, medicine, the world wars, and family and local history. New oral history transcripts and audio files will be added periodically.
