The Oregon State University Special Collections and Archives Research Center (SCARC) is home to one of the more active oral history programs administered by any archive on the West Coast. Since 2011, SCARC faculty and staff have conducted over 400 oral history interviews, in the process creating a body of work that has contributed greatly to the scholarly documentation of past events while also providing useful context on contemporary life at OSU and across the Pacific Northwest.
In that same timespan, the department has likewise collected dozens more sessions completed by OSU students and faculty as well as donors external to the university. All of SCARC's more recent interviews have been cataloged alongside several decades' worth of legacy oral history collections that are maintained and preserved by the department. All told, SCARC is the repository for nearly 1,000 oral interviews, the earliest of which was conducted in 1949.
Here are specific oral histories that touch on the basis of food in relation to the LibGuide topics.
