Oral History Program Information
The Oral History Collection is comprised of audio and video recordings and associated documentation relating to interviewed Nurse Corps Officers. The first recordings date back to 1989, when Doris M. Sterner began collecting and managing the oral histories of Navy Nurses as research for her book, “In and Out of Harm’s Way.”
In 2014, the NNCA Board of Directors decided to relocate the Memorabilia and Oral History Collections to History Associates Incorporated’s storage facility in Rockville, Maryland, for long-term storage and management.
Beginning in 2015, the points of contact for volunteering to be interviewed for the Oral History program is coordinated through the NNCA Chapters and the National Oral History Committee.
NNCA Chapter members and NNCA members-at-large within each Chapter catchment area are requested to contact the corresponding Chapter Oral History Representative for assistance with volunteering to be interviewed as a part of the Oral History program.
Please find the Chapter contact information via the website “JOIN” menu; select the Chapter corresponding to your membership or location. Using the Chapter email address at the bottom of the document, request to be referred to the Chapter Oral History Representative.
Non-NNCA members who volunteer to participate in the Oral History program are requested to contact the National Oral History Committee Chair.
