|Polar Oral History Project|
The Polar Oral History Program is administered by The American Polar Society and The Ohio State University's Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program and funded by the National Science Foundation. Its purpose is to document the early years of American polar exploration, by interviewing those who served in those regions since the 1920s, with the goal of preserving the heritage of American polar exploration for future generations of researchers and scientists. One hundred interviews with scientists, military personnel and explorers were conducted for this project, resulting in almost 300 hours of audio tape documentation. Brief abstracts of the interviews, written by the interviewer, are linked to each name. Transcripts have been completed for most interviews and are available by contacting the polar curator.
