The Phyllis Noble Memorial Oral History Fund

In the oral history project, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers interview other Volunteers about their Peace Corps experiences. Volunteer interviewers cover all costs incurred, including supplies, procuring appropriate equipment and travel expenses to conduct interviews.

 

Recordings are archived in the Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Collection at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, a unit of the National Archives and Records Administration.

 

Donations to the Phyllis Noble Memorial Oral History Fund, established in 2017, will cover costs of digitizing the 520 interviews recorded on audiocassette tapes from 1999 to 2015. The cost of digitizing the recordings is estimated at $50,000. After these recordings are digitized and go online, the Fund will be used to promote and expand the RPCV Oral History Project.   

 

Donations are tax deductible and may be made through the National Peace Corps Association at: https://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/campaigns/rpcv-oral-history-project
