Oral History Project

To collect and preserve the rich history of DePaul, the DES initiated an Oral History Project, inviting retirees to share their stories and memories through video and audio recordings.  If you have ideas for story recordings, or are interested in sharing your memories in an audio recording, please contact the chair of the Special Programs and Events Committee, or Alice Farrell at afarrell@depaul.edu or 312-362-8822 to schedule a recording session.
