Foodways Texas Oral History Collection Available Online

 
We are excited to announce that most of our oral history archive is up and available online at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History!! Thanks in no small part to (our intern) Bethany Fair and the folks working in the digital archive department at the Briscoe Center, we now have a searchable digital archive. Currently the public can access the audio interface, which includes a searchable, scrolling copy of the transcript and a general table of contents. Soon you will also be able to access PDF files of the transcripts as well as photos and ephermera collected during the interviews.

It it still a work in progress and will be updated regularly, but to say we’re thrilled is an absolute understatement.

You can browse the collection here: Foodways Texas Oral History Collection
