Language of Materials



This collection consists of fourteen student conducted oral history projects related to Lehigh University. The course (History 303) was taught by Professor Kim Carrell-Smith in the Fall semester of 2003. Through the course, the students studied the standards of oral histories and as a final project, they interviewed Lehigh alumni, staff and faculty about Lehigh University, its history, traditions and experiences. Some of the interviews are restricted since the interviewees did not sign the release forms (see notes and marks), and some lack of recordings and/or release agreements. The collection is kept as it was received.


The materials are arranged by format, and processed as they were delivered.
