Oral Histories - Vietnam

The Library’s oral history program began in a small way while the President was still in office and continued on until recently. Throughout those years, trained historians recorded interviews with hundreds of people—from childhood friends of the President and First Lady, to those who worked with them throughout their lives, members of his administration, lawmakers, advisers and opponents. You will find interviews about the Vietnam war as well as Civil Rights, the Great Society, the Middle East, Beautification, the Space Program, and just about every topic and event of the Johnson years.

Most of those interviews have now been transcribed, and transcripts are now available at the LBJ Library. Some transcripts are accessible on the Oral History home page of the LBJ Library website and many more on the Miller Center website.  Lending copies are also available for those without Internet access by contacting the Library at (512) 721-0212.
