Are you interested in stories of war and protest?
The Dartmouth Vietnam Project (DVP) recruits current Dartmouth students to conduct, record, and preserve oral histories about the Vietnam War era (1950-1975). Each of the interviews in our online archive is a joint collaboration between a student interviewer and an older member of the college community who has volunteered to share his or her personal memories of the war and its impact on Dartmouth and on American society. We interview military veterans, antiwar protestors, alumni, faculty, staff, and local area residents. Click the image below for a video introduction to the DVP.
For more information—including audio and transcripts of completed interviews—please visit the DVP website. Dartmouth sophomores and students in other classes who will be on campus during the Summer 2017 Term are invited to apply to become a DVP interviewer. The DVP is open to all majors.

The DVP is a joint program of the Department of History and Rauner Library. It receives support from the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) and the members of the Dartmouth Class of 1964. The faculty leaders of the DVP are Prof. Edward Miller, Prof. Jennifer Miller, and Prof. Julia Rabig. The DVP’s archivist and oral historian is Caitlin Birch.
