|Baylor University Institute for Oral History
Since its founding in 1970, the Institute for Oral History has collected over 5000 interviews. The Institute has created transcripts of all interviews in the collection, and most of these transcripts are available to researchers and the public in PDF format.
About half of the transcripts in the collection have been fully edited and compiled as finished oral memoirs, and the fully searchable texts of all of these are available online. Draft versions of most of the remaining transcripts are also available online as searchable full-text documents.
Audio recordings are available for some interviews; these interviews can be identified by the phrase “digital audio file” in the description. To request access to a recording, send a request toBUIOH@Baylor.edu . Be sure to provide complete information about the name of the interviewee and the date of the interview.

This collection is considered an active collection. Items will be added periodically as they are acquired by Baylor University and processed through the Digitization Projects Group.
