Use the People page to browse and sort all interviews. This page allows you to narrow down names by the following criteria:
- Group, such as Rutgers alumni, faculty, administration, or non-affiliated interviewees. (Non-affiliated interviewees are African Americans who did not study or work at Rutgers University, but who granted interviews to Rutgers historians; they are typically past or present New Jersey residents who share their perspectives on Black life in New Jersey.)
- Graduating class (relevant for alumni).
- Rutgers campus (New Brunswick, Newark, Camden) or Rutgers school, such as Douglass College, Graduate School of Education, School of Engineering, and so on.
A sorting feature at the top of the People page allows you to arrange the results by last name, graduating class, or birth year.
You can also access the Names page to view a simple printable list of all interviewees.
Check out the Subjects page to see an alphabetical list of organizations, schools, occupations, and themes mentioned in the oral histories.
You can see a list of places where interviews were conducted as well as a list of places where interviewees were born. We are working to create a map of all the places mentioned in the interviews.
You can simply type a name or keyword into the search bar at the top of this page and hit the [Search] button.
Or use Advanced Search to query specific property fields.
