PCH Collection Overview

Collection Title: People’s Community Health Center Oral History (PCH)

Inclusive Dates: 2011-2014

Size: 0.2 linear feet

Scope and Contents:  
17 transcripts of oral history interviews conducted in 2011 by UB students.

Historical Note:  
This collection was created by University of Baltimore students in "Exploring the Past," an undergraduate methods course taught by Dr. Elizabeth Nix in the fall of 2011. The People's Community Health Center provided Dr. Nix with the names of people who had been active in the early years of their organization, which was originally named The People's Free Medical Clinic. In the summer and fall of 2012, undergraduate honors student Beverly Bowers combined the various student transcriptions and edited them for consistency and accuracy. Eighteen people were interviewed for this project. 

Custodial History:  
Seventeen interview transcripts were transferred to Special Collections by Dr. Elizabeth Nix between January 2013 and August 2014.
