Our Oral History Project brings to life the University's past through spoken testimony and stories from alumni of various courses. It includes interviews with Polytechnic secondary schoolboys who studied with us in the 1930s and 1940s (including those evacuated during the Second World War), as well as members of clubs and University staff.
The University’s Archive Services has recorded 50 interviews, which can be listened to by appointment. With the help of the Digital Communications team, 70 excerpts from these interviews are now available online, categorised under different topics for the public to explore.
The project is ongoing and the Archives Team is always looking for new participants. Contact Archive Services at [email protected] for more information.
