Alumni-in-Action Oral History Interviews

The Alumni-In-Action Oral Histories Collection contains audio recordings of interviews and select transcripts with past Guelph Alumni. Interviews were conducted by graduates of OAC, MAC, and OVC in this joint project with Alumni House and alumni and volunteers, including former Chief Librarian, Florence Partridge. These digital files originated on cassette tapes, still held in Archival & Special Collections, along with many transcripts.

If you would like a type-written transcript for any of these oral histories, please contact us.
