The 1979 merger of Peabody College for Teachers with Vanderbilt University was a significant event in the history of southern education. A generous donation from Dr. Hal Ramer made it possible to record and transcribe the oral histories of people who experienced the merger closely. These stories enrich the existing historical documents records.

This site links to the voice interviews as well as transcriptions of the interviews of former students, faculty, administrators, and friends.

This project was a collaboration between Peabody Library, Special Collections and University Archives, and the Peabody College Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
