How Do I Find Oral Histories?

Use Spoke, the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History collection catalog, to find, listen to, and request copies of oral histories from the SCRC.  You can follow links to interviews or projects that are available online or request interviews that are not yet online via your research services account.


Selected interviews and oral history collections from SCRC

The Therapeutic Communities Oral History Collection includes selected interviews conducted by historian Claire D. Clark for her book The Recovery Revolution: The Battle Over Addiction Treatment in the United States (Columbia University Press, 2017) as well as subsequent oral histories with both therapeutic community leaders and survivors.
