Oral History Project

The Committee on Princetoniana recently honored Tom Swift '76 and the PA3 for their work on the Oral History Project.  You can view the resolution passed by the committee here.

The following write up on the project appeared in the Regional Roar, The Newsletter of the Committee on Regional Associations, in the Late Fall 2011 edition.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Oral History Project sponsored by the Princetoniana Committee was started in 2006 and consists of oral history interviews undertaken by alumni to capture Princeton’s history from Old Guard alumni, early alumnae, and others with significant Princeton connections and perspectives.

The interviews are free-form but do use a topic guide of questions that focuses on the interviewee’s experiences at Princeton, and they typically last about an hour and are audio-recorded. They are then transcribed, and the transcripts and recordings are entered into the University Archives at Mudd Library (and can generally be found online). To date, approximately 40 interviews have entered the archive.

The Princetoniana Committee is looking for volunteer interviewers to support this wonderful initiative in capturing histories of Princeton and its historical intersections.

The committee has found that regions conducting an “Interview Fest” in a central location can be quite successful. By offering refreshments and providing recording equipment and interview guides in a wheelchair-accessible location, local alumni (both interviewers and interviewees) are more likely to volunteer, and great progress can be made. To that end, the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) has built a process to find and train volunteer interviewers, and they have acquired a pool of ten recorders that can be made available to any region wanting to conduct local interviews.

Excerpts from interviews can be found here.

First Friday Lunch - December 2nd, 2011

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!

In December, we will be joined by Catherine Reilly, a 2nd year graduate student in the Department of Comparative Literature, focusing on Russian and German literature of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Catherine will discuss recent progress in her research on connections between Rainer Maria Rilke and Anton Chekhov, in addition to a project on Teratology, Wax Anatomy and the Monstrous Text. Those of you who attended Catherine's lively First Friday discussion last season will recall that she was planning a summer in Europe to continue her work.  Join us to hear about what she learned there.



Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required. 

Date: Friday, December 2nd, 2011 
Time: 12 noon - 2 pm
Location: Nassau Club, 6 Mercer St, Princeton, NJ
Nassau Club membership is not necessary to attend this event.
