What is Oral History Australia?

  • to promote the practice and methods of oral history
  • to educate in the use of oral history methods
  • to encourage discussions on all aspects of oral history
  • to foster the preservation of oral history records

Oral History Australia South Australia/Northern Territory came to life just seven months after the national body was founded in Perth in July 1978.  There are now associations in each state.
