Biographical or Historical Information

The Reichelt Oral History Program was founded in the Florida State University Department of History in 1969 under by Dr. Edward F. Keuchel, with the intent of teaching oral history techniques to students while documenting FSU’s history.  In 1996, with the encouragement of university president Sandy D’Alemberte, the program was established permanently as an entity within the History Department. The program later expanded to include histories on the University, the Florida State College for Women, Tallahassee, Florida, veterans of World War II, the Korean conflict, the Vietnam War, and other military conflicts.
