Oral Histories

The MBLWHOI Library Oral History Project began in 1998 to capture the recollections and personal insights of the scientists and staff of Woods Hole scientific institutions.

The project endeavors to include the entire spectrum of the Woods Hole scientific community, including administrators, support staff, ships' crew, engineers, scientists, and others. Oral history conversations center on early marine research, scientific projects, technology and field work, and how each individual came to the Woods Hole scientific community. The WHOI Data Library and Archives is the repository for audio and videotape recordings of the oral history discussions as well as the printed transcriptions.

Much of this material is available for public use.
