Chicago History Museum Making History Award Oral History Project

Since 1995, Prof. Timothy Gilfoyle has conducted oral history interviews with most of the recipients of the Making History Awards, given annually by the Chicago History Museum (CHM) to Chicagoans whose enduring contributions to the city and metropolitan region made them figures of historic importance. The interviews were conducted with audiotape or an audio recorder and have been transcribed. The transcriptions, however, have never been formally processed by CHM and made available to researchers or the public.
