About the Collection
In preparation for its centennial in 2011, the OSU Extension Service interviewed several of its emeritus faculty in 2007, 2008 and 2009. These interviews help to tell the story of extension in Oregon during the 50 years after World War II. They cover areas including agriculture, 4-H, home economics, energy, community development, Sea Grant, communications, and administration and support. The original interviews and transcripts have been placed in the Special Collections & Archives Research Center.
Interviews are available via the OSU Libraries’ streaming server. Transcripts and photographs are also available online.
