Collection Description

Administrative History

The World War II era oral history project was created as a way to preserve the experiences of Emory School of Law alumni who served in the armed forces during World War II and earned their law degrees on the G.I. bill. Sponsored by the Emory School of Law Office of Development and Alumni Relations and the Emory School of Law, basic information was first obtained through the use of a pre-interview survey form. Interviews were video recorded.

Scope and Content Note

Additional materials, including DVD copies of the interviews, are included as indicated in the container list.
