Personal Histories Project

The Personal Histories Project is an educational, oral-history research initiative in which senior scientists are invited to share their memories and life stories.

 

Founded by Pamela Jane Smith of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, the Personal Histories Project hosts events in which archaeologists and other specialists share their personal recollections, through which we better understand the development of archaeology and the origins of current research agenda. The retrospective discussions introduce audiences to the enjoyable experience of listening to life histories as aural and visual sources are created. These sources are then combined with published literature and unpublished archives to enhance our understanding of twentieth-century science.
