The LSU Libraries Special Collections Williams Center for Oral History is launching its first podcast, “What Endures," found online at http://oralhistory.blogs.lib.lsu.edu/.
The first episode, “Politics and a Pulitzer,” highlights the mission of the Williams Center and focuses on its namesake, Dr. T. Harry Williams. Featured excerpts include an interview that Williams conducted with former Governor Richard Leche, excerpts from Huey Long's "Share Our Wealth" speech, and more!
Subsequent podcasts, running 15-20 minutes in length, will be posted approximately every two weeks. Upcoming episodes are “Sin and Smoke: Stories of Our State” and “‘We Watched it All Wash Away:’ Oral Histories of Flood and Storm Survivors.” Additional podcasts will feature Louisiana’s struggle with civil rights, university history, women’s history in education, and Louisiana’s WWII veterans. The director will also interview professionals in the field of oral history along with some of the Center’s partners about their projects.
So stay tuned, and stay in touch!
