This collection began with the Kentucky Oral History Commission's effort to establish oral history programs in each of the state's 120 counties. County libraries worked with local volunteers to collect interviews. Since 1987, county oral histories have been generated primarily by recipients of technical assistance grants from the commission that provide training and equipment to volunteer interviewers. Interviews donated by independent researchers are also included. Original collection held at the Kentucky Oral History Commission/Kentucky Historical Society. Authorization must by granted by the Society to use or publish by any means the archival material to which the Society holds copyright.
