October 24-28, I attended the Oral History Association
Annual Meeting in Oakland, California. For those like myself, who are new to the world of oral history, the association:
...seeks to bring together all persons interested in oral history as a way of collecting and interpreting human memories to foster knowledge and human dignity. With an international membership, the OHA serves a broad and diverse audience. Local historians, librarians and archivists, students, journalists, teachers, and academic scholars from many fields have found that the OHA provides both professional guidance and a collegial environment for sharing research.
