This oral history project challenges students to select a person over the age of fifty-five and ask her/him about what life was like in the past. Their interview can focus on a particular era such as the Great Depression (late 1920's and 1930's) or World War Two (1939-1945). Questions are focused on the Civil Rights Era in Texas (1940's through the 1970's) or life during the Cold War (post-1945 until the late 1980's). Many Americans participated in wars in Korea (1950-1953) and Vietnam (1964-1973). Others remember the Vietnam War Era with a homefront perspective. Perhaps, your interviewee would like to discuss the changes of a woman's life in the twentieth century. Her-story belongs with His-tory.

In 1999 the Vietnam Center initiated the Oral History Project. An element of the Vietnam Archive, the mission of the Oral History Project is to create and preserve a more complete record of the wars in Southeast Asia by preserving, through recorded interviews, the recollections and experiences of the men and women who participated in these wars, as well as those military and civilian personnel involved in activities surrounding the wars on the homefront. The Archive believes that the history of the wars in Southeast Asia is not complete without the inclusion of the voices of the men and women who were involved in the wars.
