The Kennesaw State University oral history series is a project conducted in collaboration with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL), and the College of the Humanities and Social Sciences to collect oral histories from all past recipients of the KSU Distinguished Professor, Teaching, Scholarship and Service Awards. The interviews were conducted by Dr. Thomas Scott and Dr. Dede Yow, with transcript editing and indexing assistance by Susan Batungbacal, Josh Dix and Jan Heidrich-Rice. The sub-series, HIST 4425 50th Anniversary Series, was conducted by students in the HIST 4425 class to document people who have made significant contributions to the history of Kennesaw State University.

Interviews of other faculty and members of the KSU Foundation who have made significant contributions to Kennesaw State University are also included within this project.
