The Newcomb Oral History Project began in 1986. Those interviewed recall stories of their classes, professors, and social life, all while painting a picture of their experiences on campus and in the city of New Orleans. Thanks to the efforts of longtime volunteers like Helen Schneidau (NC '67), the collection has grown to include almost 300 recordings of graduates, faculty, and others with a connection to Newcomb College.

Thanks to funding provided by the Collat Media Project, the Frieda Ramos Oral History Fund, and the Newcomb Alumnae Association, some recordings have undergoing digitization, and some of these recordings can be accessed online. In some cases we can provide access to digitized and digital recordings on request.

If you are a Newcomb graduate and would like to share your life experiences with the Newcomb Archives, please contact Chloe Raub, Head of Archives and Special Collections, at
