Community Collection Oral Histories

The Center for Oral History at California University of PA seeks to add to local history by capturing and archiving the thoughts and perceptions of nearby community members from all walks of life.  Community-focused oral history projects satisfy that goal and bring to life the stories of men and women who are the hearts and souls of our neighboring communities.  We invite you to explore these projects in Community Collections and enjoy the people who represent the spirit of our region.
