Historical note

The UGA Student Veterans Oral History Project originated as a project organized by Ted Barco, Director of the Student Veterans Resource Center at the University of Georgia, to document the experiences of the population of student veterans on campus. Barco conducted the first oral history in the collection, after which Kate Dahlstrand, a doctoral candidate in the UGA History Department and U.S. Army veteran, assumed the role of interviewer.

Scope and Content

The UGA Student Veterans Oral History Project is comprised of oral history interviews with University of Georgia student veterans, who represent service across the different branches of the United States military.
