Labor Oral History Project, date unknown and 1970-1990
In 1970, faculty member Elizabeth Balanoff received a bicentennial grant of $16,825 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to conduct and transcribe a series of interviews with individuals in the Chicago area who were involved in the labor movement. She also interviewed Roosevelt University founders.
While the audio recordings were returned to the interviewees, in 2001, the Roosevelt University Library received a $10,000 grant from the Illinois State Library to digitize the transcripts of the interviews. These transcripts are available online through the Archives web page and also through the Archives Online Catalog. The hard copies are preserved in the RU Archives.
