Center for Oral History
The Center for Oral History (COH), Social Science Research Institute, College of Social Sciences, University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, was established in 1976 by the Hawai‘i State Legislature. COH preserves the recollections of Hawai‘i’s people through oral interviews and disseminates oral history transcripts to researchers, students, and the general community.
COH also develops books, articles, catalogs, brochures, photo displays, and videotapes based on oral histories, serves as a resource center for oral history materials, and trains groups and individuals in oral history research.
The Center for Oral History is a part of the College of Social Sciences. The College, in its quest for continual improvement, asks for your input through its Commitment to Excellence committee survey.
