Oral History Projects

The Sister Mary Carmel McGarigle Archives endeavors to collect oral history interviews and reflections from the Misericordia University community including alumni, and retired faculty and staff. This is an ongoing project, which will be added to an oral history database. If you are interested in being interviewed or want to submit your reflections about Misericordia University, please contact the Archivist, Dani Vaughn-Tucker.

Oral histories are available in PDF format (click here to download a free Adobe Acrobat reader).
