The People at TC

To celebrate its upcoming 125th anniversary, Teachers College has engaged The Narrative Trust to create an Oral History consisting of videotaped interviews with major figures in the life of the College over the past several decades. To date more than 70 interviews have been conducted with faculty and emeritus faculty, trustees, alumni and administrators, spanning all the fields that constitute the College's major areas of expertise. Video interviews from the Oral History and accompanying transcripts will be archived at the College and made accessible to historians and others, and various excerpts will be shown to the public and the TC Community during the 125th anniversary year, which begins in spring 2013.
