For more than a quarter-century, ITC researchers have been collecting, transcribing, and sharing first-hand accounts of the lives of Texans. The extensive Oral History collection includes more than 900 personal remembrances of life and events that have built our state.

Most of the ITC Oral History Program collection is available as audio and text files through the UTSA Library Archives Special Collections website.
