Oral History

The George Wesley Ricks Memorial WWII Oral History Archive and Greatest Generation Oral History Archive seek to record the history of West Texas members of the Greatest Generation and World War II and Korean War veterans and their loved ones.

We are collecting oral histories, photographs, documents, artifacts, and other memorabilia to add to the West Texas Collection at Angelo State University. These new archives will be used in periodic exhibits and will be available to students and researchers to study this important period in our history.

Both of these oral history archives are made possible by generous grants from anonymous donors through the San Angelo Area Foundation (SAAF).
