Here’s a post from our recent graduate Will Buie:
It is a real joy to be the senior research oral historian at the Rutgers Oral History Archives. I am heavily involved in audio production and editing transcripts before they go live. When not processing, I am usually out conducting oral history interviews, speaking to groups about oral history and thinking of different ways to help the public engage with our material. Later this year, I will be executing my own research project, with support from the archive, on the Vailsburg neighborhood of Newark, New Jersey. I encourage you to visit our website and return to it later this year as we begin posting our new collections of interviews on the evolution of the ACLU and Livingston College. We will also post collections highlighting the experiences of refugees from the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and black alumni who attended Rutgers University in the 1960s and 1970s.
