Oral Histories

The Oral History Subcommittee of the TRB History Committee is conducting a project on Transportation Oral Histories. One objective of this project is to locate, organize, preserve, and make useful existing oral histories of major transportation programs, projects, organizations, and methods by developing a comprehensive inventory. To date, Over 1,000 transportation oral histories have been discovered, some one-off, most as part of thematic collections. Information on these is to be found in the attached table, which includes:

  • Location by state
  • Repository
  • Name of the history
  • Year or years collected
  • Format
  • URL to the history
  • Description

The table has been alphabetically sorted by state. URLs are hyperlinked.
