ORAL HISTORIES

Welcome to the Office of NIH History oral history archive.  The oral histories are listed alphabetically by the interviewee's last name.  Many interviews have been conducted, but not all have been transcribed and posted yet.  Those that are available for download are highlighted, with links to PDF files.

Transcripts of interviews about AIDS research are located at AIDS and NIH.  Oral history transcripts of NIH researchers and scientists also can be found at the National Library of Medicine, the Chemical Heritage Foundation and the IEEE History Center.

To request a transcript of an interview not yet posted, please contact the History Office at 301-496-6610 or history@nih.gov.  The Office of History welcomes suggestions of additional sources of NIH oral histories not listed.  Please visit this site again, as this list will surely grow.
