Center for Public History - University of Houston
Oral History of Houston Project
You are being asked to participate in the "Oral History of
Houston" research project conducted by the Center for Public History at the University of Houston. This project seeks to collect stories about Houston's past. The main purpose of this oral history project is to help preserve and document various aspects of Houston's history, including but not limited to: race, ethnicity, and gender, community history, arts and culture, and politics.
You will be asked to participate in an interview of approximately 90 minutes. This interview may be audiotaped or videotaped. Copies of the interview and audio/videotapes will be deposited in permanent collections at the Houston History Archives in the Special Collections Department, M.D. Anderson Library, University of Houston.
While the interview is not expected to elicit any emotional reactions, the interview may be stopped at any time if you request to do so. While you will not directly benefit from participation in this project, your participation will help future researchers better understand Houston's history. The results of this study may be published in professional journals. It may also be used for educational purposes or for professional presentations. Your name will be included in the interview and all published materials. You may restrict usage of parts of your interview. Those restrictions should be specified on an attached form.
If you have any questions about this project, please contact William H. Kellar, PhD in the Center for Public History at the University of Houston. You may reach him by phone at (713) 743-2342 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
