The Department of Oral History tells the stories of South Carolinians in their own voices.

Does the thought of campfire stories bring back fond memories? How about all those stories your grandparents told you while sitting on the front porch in the rocking chair that mean more now than back then? Wouldn’t you like to share those stories with the next generation? This is the mission of the Department of Oral History.

 

 “We are committed to preserving these incredible one-of-a-kind stories for future generations. These are the voices of South Carolina veterans, leaders, activists, artists, authors, scientists and, yes, our grandparents,” says Andrea L’Hommedieu, Director of the Department of Oral History.

 

The department not only seeks unique stories for preservation, but trains students to continue the mission of keeping these moments in history alive for the community and the nation.

 

During Give 4 Garnet, we are seeking funding to expand these four growing collection areas:

  • Women’s collections – including the Second Wave of the Women’s Movement, 1977 International Women’s Year, the Women’s Suffragist Collection and the Loretta Dunbar Peace Corps Collection
  • African-American history collections – including Fairfield High School and Rosenwald Schools (which document segregated education in South Carolina), the William Gravely Collection: the Lynching of Willie Earle, and multiple civils rights history interviews
  • Veteran’s collections – including the Veterans Collection and the James H. Davis and John S. Davis U.S. Marine Corps Oral History Collection
  • Arts, literature, and culture collections – including interviews with artists Larry Lebby and Edmund Yaghjian, writers Jan Collins, James Ellroy, Anita Lobel, and many more

To continue growing, we need your support. Your donation will ensure the voices of our past are heard well into the future.
