About | Manuscripts | University Archives | Rare Books | Genealogy | Oral History

The Louise Pettus Archives and Special collections has been collecting and preserving stories, peronal accounts, and recollections through recorded interviews as part of the Oral History Program since 1973. The Archives is open to the public and holds more than 300 interviews in audio, video and text formats, on a wide variety of subjects, including life at Winthrop, Rock Hill, SC and the Catwba Region, mill life and workers, the Catawaba Indians, American Wars and conflicts, Vereran History Project, women in politics and society, African-American, and many other topics.

The Oral History Program's mission is to record unique life histories, documenting historical events and memories of our time by preserving and adding these voices to the historical record.

For more information on the interviews see our Oral History Collection Guide.
