Oral History Project

Oleg Graber Oleg Grabar (1929–2011), 2008. Dumbarton Oaks Archives AR.DP.2011.01.

The Oral History Project at Dumbarton Oaks was begun in 2008 with the mission of interviewing and recording all people who are or have been significantly associated with Dumbarton Oaks and/or its founders, Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss. The majority of the interviews were and are undertaken by summer interns from Harvard University. Although recorded in either audio or audio-video formats, the interviews are published as digital transcriptions.

The Oral History Project Blog, an ongoing project, features highlights from these interviews.
