Reference Quicklinks Graphic Image Living Legacies Oral History Project

 

The Living Legacies Oral History Project was begun as a way to honor donors and contributors to Randolph-Macon College, many of whom are alumni of the College, with an emphasis on capturing the essence of the student experience at the College over time. The project has expanded to include interviews with additional alumni and others involved with the College in meaningful ways whose stories need to be preserved.

By adding donors’ remembrances to the permanent collection of the R-MC library, we are honoring them in a significant manner as well as recording their connections to and impressions of R-MC. Interviewees are asked to discuss the motivation for gifts or donations to the College, to provide reminiscences of their first recollections of or connections to the College, and to share their perceptions of both the College community and the surrounding community at the point of their greatest involvement with the College.
