Oral History Center

The Oral History Center is a project of the History faculty in the Social Sciences Department at Robert Morris University.

Growing out of a joint effort between Robert Morris and Moon Township to get a local neighborhood included on the National Register of Historic Places, the Oral History Center facilitates research into recent American history, allows students to get involved in oral interviews, and serves as a repository of archival materials.

The Center is currently conducting the Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans Project (IAVP), which aims to preserve first-hand, on-the-ground histories of America’s wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Center is run by Professor of History Dr. John McCarthy.  The Center is located in 328 Patrick Henry Hall, on the RMU Campus. For more information, email Dr. McCarthy at oralhistory@rmu.edu.
