Series III: Oral History , 2001-2014
Scope and Contents
The Wright State University Retirees Association collection provides information about the retirees association via meeting minutes, their newsletter, The Extension, photographs, and oral histories. The collection is arranged into three series.
Series I contains the business records of the association. The records range from by-laws, membership lists and correspondence. The bulk of the records are the monthly executive board meeting minutes and The Extension newsletter.
Series II contains photographs and ephemera. The photographs are from events held by the association. Of note are the general staff photographs from the 1970s. One can get a sense of the fashion and technology trends of the university for that decade.
Series III contains the recorded oral histories of WSURA members. Of special note are the oral histories of the founding faculty members of the university. These interviews contain information of the university in the beginning when it was the Dayton Campus of The Ohio State and Miami University Extension. This series contains the master recordings for each interview as well as interview transcripts. The interviews from 2001 to 2004 are recorded on audio cassettes, while those recorded from 2006 to the present are on DVCAM tapes. The interviews can be accessed on Core Scholar through the libraries website at: http://corescholar.libraries.wright.edu/archives_retirees/.
