In the Oral History Project, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers interview other Volunteers, Staff and Counterparts about their Peace Corps experiences. Volunteer interviewers cover all costs incurred, including supplies, procuring appropriate equipment, software licenses and travel expenses (if needed) to conduct interviews.
Recordings are archived in the University of Kentucky Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History and 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 currently archived at the JFK Library. The cost of digitizing the recordings is estimated at $30,000. After these recordings are digitized and go online, the Fund will be used to promote and expand the RPCV Oral History Archives Project.
