Several oral history projects have been undertaken at UMBC. The first, led by Dr.
Ed Orser for the 30th anniversary, was completed in the mid 1990s and a half hour
compilation was completed, titled "UMBC: The First Years." In preparation for the
40th anniversary in 2006, additional interviews were conducted by Joseph Tatarewicz
and Barry Lanman of the Martha Ross Center for Oral History; this project, which is
still active, is called the UMBC Founders Oral History Project. Additionally, Dr.
Larry Wilt and Dr. George La Noue have both conducted interviews with UMBC-related
administrators for the 40th anniversary and 50th anniversary, respectively.
Collection material has been sent from several different sources depending on the
interviewer or the group that created the recordings. Accessions: UARC1993-01, UARC1996-18,
UARC2001-06, UARC2001-09, UARC2002-16-02, UARC2007-22, UARC2009-48, UARC2009-49, UARC2009-103,
UARC2010-028. Additional materials were transferred from Collections 196 and 207.
Accessions: UARC 2010-07 and UARC 2015-21.
Each interview has been assigned a unique number (e.g., OH-001), which applies to
all formats in which the interview is held. Successive interviews with the same interviewees
are given another number. These numbers provide the physical organizing principle
for the collection. At the first processing, the numbers were assigned based on an
alphabetical ordering of the names of interviewees, but subsequent additions to the
collection will be assigned new numbers and the alphabetical arrangement will not
