Established in 1968, the Lawrence de Graaf Center for Oral and Public History is a teaching, training, research, publication, and public service archive located at CSU Fullerton's Pollak Library. It contains more than 6,000 oral histories covering a wide range of people and topics from California and beyond.
Oral history interviews have long captured essential and engaging historical information. They are a unique primary source, documenting first-hand accounts of history as told by the individuals who lived it. California’s own illustrious and colorful past is well documented through oral history interviews. On this page, interviews of Californian’s with different backgrounds and experiences will not just recount the state’s rich history, but will provide special insight into California’s great diversity.
