About the Oral History Archive
At the center of our work is our “living archive” of more than 8,000 aural and visual interviews that explore diverse topics in United States and global history.
Follow our blog for the most up-to-date reporting on CCOH's projects, collections, and events.
CCOH conducts innovative oral history research projects, which we add to our archive and use as the basis for educational programs.

Phase three of a project on Carnegie Corporation of New York will focus on grantmaking under the leadership of President Vartan Gregorian.
CCOH is dedicated to building the field of oral history, and making our archives and expertise of use to the public.
The Community Workshop series brings together organizers and activists with CCOH staff for oral history training and discussions of the methodology and its applicability to social movements and advocacy work.
