Administrative History

The GVSU Veterans History Project was established in 2006 to serve as a partner with the Library of Congress in its national effort to collect and preserve the stories of American veterans and other participants in, or witnesses to, the American experience in wartime. The scope of the project covers all conflicts from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from the World Wars to Iraq and Afghanistan. It includes both combat veterans and those who served in times of war or peace who did not directly experience combat. It also includes civilian witnesses to aspects of the wartime experience, including workers in war industries, aid workers, peace activists and civilian contractors. Project members conduct oral history interviews throughout West Michigan, and on occasion beyond.
