Oral History

HACCM’s oral history collection highlights the diversity of experiences within the Hellenic-American population of the Pacific Northwest. The collection includes interviews conducted since the organization’s founding in 2007, as well as interviews conducted by other groups including AHEPA, the Delphi Club of Portland, and the Old Town History Project which are now preserved as a part of the HACCM collection. Interviews are conducted with individuals, as well as some group interviews. If you would like to listen or view interviews in this collection, please contact HACCM.
