Department of History. Oral History Project records

Identifier: A104


In the spring of 1998 and the spring of 1999, students in HST 4263, an oral history class offered by Northeastern University's University College, completed oral history projects as part of the course curriculum. Taught by Susan Keats, the course introduced students to oral history techniques such as planning, interviewing, auditing, editing, and transcribing. In 2003, University College stopped offering HST 4263. Oral history is now covered as a topic in Public History. Susan Keats received a master's degree in history from Northeastern University in 1980. She taught history in the University College from 1991 to 2003. Keats also served as vice president of corporate records management for Fidelity Investments in Boston beginning in 1998.
