Filed under: audio-visual material, found in the archives — thiscangobacktothearchives @ 3:38 pm

Over the last few weeks, the Gruss Lipper Digital Laboratory at the Center for Jewish History has completed ingesting the digital surrogates of the UJA-Federation Oral History Project’s audio tapes and transcripts up through the letter P. All of the digitized interviews are at and are also linked to the finding aid for the Oral History Project.

That means that researchers and those interested in the history of the UJA-Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York will be able to listen (and read) online to the interviews of Henry Friendly, Louise B. Greilsheimer, Maurice Hexter, Justin Israel, George M. Jaffin, Lawrence Kobrin, Stanley Lowell, Harry Mancher, Minnie Nathanson, Steven Osterweis, Murray Peters, and many other interviews.

In the coming months, the Digital Laboratory will be completing the digitization of interviews whose participant’s last name begins with R, S, and T.
