Name of creator
The Scottish Oral History Centre (SOHC) was set up within the Department of History at the University of Strathclyde in 1995. Since its foundation the SOHC has been involved in a wide range of teaching, research and outreach activities designed primarily to encourage the use of ‘best practice’ oral history methodology in Scotland. Until 2005, the SOHC was directed by Professor Callum Brown, since then by Professor Arthur McIvor.
Transferred in 2015 and 2016 from SOHC. The project's original SOHC ID was SOHCA/021. The original recordings are currently missing. Most likely they were made using a cassette recorder.
