HISTORY

From 1973 to 1977, the Schlesinger Library carried on an oral history project, funded by two two-year grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, on the role of women in the family planning movement. All but one of the interviewees were women, and many were physicians or nurses. The project concentrated first on the birth control movement and then on abortion law reform. For further information on the project, see Family Planning Oral History Project Interviews (OH-1, T-25).

SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection consists of research materials collected by the interviewers, some of it given to them by the interviewees. A large proportion are photocopies, with some printed items and a small amount of typescript and manuscript material and photographs. Several of the interviewees have collections of papers in the Schlesinger Library.
