About Our Program
The WWU Libraries Special Collections Oral History Program was initiated in 2003. Our goal is to enhance the resources of our Campus History Collection with the recorded memories and observations of those deeply familiar with aspects of Western's history, development, culture, and contributions to the community. Participants include former faculty members, administrators, staff, and alumni, as well as individuals with special affiliations or connections with Western and attendees of the Campus School, a public school at Western from 1899 to 1967. We are deeply grateful to those who agree to share their recollections with us and with researchers of the future. Selected transcripts are available online. Others may be accessed at Special Collections (restrictions may apply).
