The Oral History: Theory and Practice course was first offered in Fall 2016. It is a semester long class dedicated to an overall topic in which students explore and develop underlying themes. Students act as scholars while researching the designated topic using the 'Iolani School Archives and other sources. Students also act as historians and content creators in developing valuable final outputs which are transferred to the Archives at the conclusion of the course.
The 'Iolani School Archives also contains oral histories not related to this course.
Opinions expressed during interviews are not the opinions of ’Iolani School and may contain viewpoints and/or manners of speech which are no longer deemed appropriate in today's society. Such elements are included in an effort to preserve the history and context of the subject matter.
