The Bates College Oral History Project seeks to document and celebrate the rich and varied history of Bates College by compiling a collection of recorded spoken memories from a variety of individuals closely connected to Bates College, including alumni/alumnae, faculty, staff, presidents and students. The project, which was conducted from January 2005 through June 2006, coincided with the College's Sesquicentennial, and was based at the Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library, Bates College, Lewiston, Maine.
