The Class of 1971 Oral History Collection contains 39 oral histories of individuals who were part of Barnard College's class of 1971. Included in the collection are transcripts, audio recordings, and video recording of interviews (currently only transcripts are available via the digital collections). The oral histories discuss the experiences of Barnard alums and are contextualized within the social, cultural, political, and economic histories of the United States. Narrators also discuss their individual life histories, including their paths leading to Barnard and their lives after college. Themes common across interviews include female friendship, feminism, political involvement during and after their time at Barnard College, issues of race and class among students at Barnard, and romance.
