KHM Oral History Collection

Currently, the Museum offers nearly 70 oral history tapes for hours of research. Click above link for audio recordings and more. Most of the audiotapes were generated by the Museum itself through a 1989-90 grant from the Kentucky Historical Society; however, a dozen or so of these tapes are from the William Sherman Oxendine Oral History Audiotape Collection. This collection, most of which is still to be converted to audiotape,  contains over 40 hours of  of interviews with approximately 70 interviewees. The interviews were done in the mid-1970's when Mr. Oxendine was a teacher at Union College.
