Special Collections Claremont Colleges Library

The Global Mormon Oral History Project began in 2018 and is housed in Special Collections of the Claremont Colleges Library. Its purpose is to collect and archive the life histories of Latter-day Saints living outside the United States. Voices of global Latter-day Saints are under-represented in collections of material about the LDS church. This particular collection will provide a resource for the study of international Latter-day Saints in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and will stand as a body to be interpreted in the future.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Smith-Pettit Foundation, the Mormon Studies Program at CGU seeks to fund an annual oral history project in a global location for the next nine years. See below for more information on that funding opportunity, as well as transcription funding opportunities and basics on how to conduct oral histories.
