Oregon Historical Society cuts oral history program

Portland State University Vanguard Oral history no more

Facing a budget shortfall of about $1 million, the Oregon Historical Society (OHS) has cut its oral history program, a key resource for recording Oregon’s history, according to former OHS employees.

Over its 28-year existence, the oral history program staff taught oral history while conducting more than 2,100 interviews, overseeing 8,400 recorded hours of tape and garnering praise as the largest oral history collection in the Pacific Northwest.
