Veterans History Project

Veterans History Project

The exhibition More Than Self: Living the Vietnam War honors the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the Vietnam War by sharing their stories from more than 700 oral histories preserved in the Kenan Research Center’s Veterans History Project. 

The Veterans History Project contains video and audio interviews of those who served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, post 9-11 conflicts, and civilians who supported them. The collection includes documents, photographs, and other artifacts pertaining to the military service of interviewees. 

The interviews preserved at the Kenan Research Center are created in partnership with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, an initiative of the American Folklife Center. The Atlanta History Center is a founding partner and has collected over 700 interviews of veterans in Metropolitan Atlanta with the invaluable assistance of the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association and the Atlanta Branch of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. 

If you are a veteran and have not shared your memories of your experience with the Atlanta History Center Veterans History Project, please consider doing so. It is a legacy only you can leave for your family, friends, and future researchers. For more information or to schedule an interview, call 404.814.4042 or e-mail veteranshistoryproject@atlantahistorycenter.com.

Digitization and cataloguing of the Atlanta History Center Veterans History Project is made possible by grants from the Scott Hudgens Family Foundation, Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Atlanta Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, and Charlie Crawford.
