Do You Know...?

The project Omaha Stories: Oral Histories of Omaha, Nebraska shares the stories of the people of Omaha through oral history interviews. 


Do You Know...? Is This You?

Dozens of people were interviewed by University of Nebraska at Omaha History students taking courses with Prof. Michael Tate in the 1970s. We want to reunite these narrators with the audio recordings of their oral history interviews that share their personal stories. UNO Libraries' Archives & Special Collections has digitized the audio cassettes and is in the processing of describing each interview to enable access to the audio recordings.

Many of the people interviewed were living in Omaha at the time of their interview. We know that many of the people interviewed are Native American, some are immigrants, and we have more to learn about all of these individuals.


Do you know someone on our list? Contact Director of Archives & Special Collections Amy Schindler (402.554.6046, acschindler@unomaha.edu).
