Scope and Contents of the Materials

The collection, “Conversations with History: interviews with people who experienced the Great Depression and World War II,” was created as part of the Student Learning Project for Dr. Elsa A. Nystrom’s class, HIST 3332, U.S. Social and Cultural History. The collection is made up of oral history interviews conducted by students with people who discuss their experiences during the Great Depression and World War II, 1929-1945. The majority of the interview subjects resided in the metropolitan Atlanta area at the time of the project. Participants represent a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

Transcripts were created by the student interviewers using excerpts from the sound recordings. Please note: There are no complete transcripts for any of the interviews in this collection. The majority of the sound recordings have not been digitized.

The interviews are interesting not only for the subjects’ experiences during the 1929 Depression and World War II, but also for contemporary attitudes regarding the 2001 September 11 Terror Attacks, the 2001 Afghan War, and the 2003 Iraq War.
