Wabash College

Hide Profile

The Wabash College Oral History Project grew out of the school's sesquicentennial celebration in the 1980s. Under the leadership of Eileen McGrath, the project focused on African-American alumni, faculty, and staff at Wabash College and on African-Americans living in Crawfordsville. The interviews took place from 1982-1986, and the project was completed in 1987.
