Oral History Project

In 2013, staff and volunteers of the Hood College Archives created and published a book about the history of Hood College as part of the Campus History Series. While an additional 5 years is perhaps not enough to warrant a rewriting of the book, the 125th anniversary committee would like to capture additional history through oral interviews of alumni, staff and faculty. The committee is particularly interested in “fleshing out” archival research materials about the move to make Hood fully coeducational.

During Reunion Weekend, June 8-10, 2018, Mary Atwell, Hood College Archivist, will be setting up hour-long time slots for interviews. If Reunion Weekend is not a preferred option, you can arrange an interview at another time throughout the year to share your story. If you are interested in participating, or would like additional information, contact Mary at 301-696-3933 or atwell@hood.edu.
