Veterans History Project
A Project of the American Folklife Center of the Library Of Congress
In September of 2003, Winthrop University began participation in the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project as a partner institution. The goal of this project is to “honor our nation’s war veterans and those who served in support of them by creating a lasting legacy of recorded interviews and other documents chronicling veterans’ and other citizens’ wartime experiences, how those experiences affected their lives and America itself.” As a partner institution, Winthrop Archives and Special Collections will house, preserve and make available the interviews conducted by volunteers. The basic biographical information of the veteran will be entered into a national database identifying the institution where the interview and accompanying documentation are available. To volunteer or for more information, please contact the Winthrop Archives and Special Collections.
