"The energy of grace alone can make a soul strong in age." - John Henry Newman.

ANU Emeritus Faculty began its Oral History Project in 2008 and because of its access to and relationship with elders of the ANU, Emeritus Faculty is in a unique position to gather accounts of the origins and development of the ANU, aspects of which might be little known. Such stories potentially provide an opportunity for the pioneers to identify and record their place and role in the life and development of the university since its founding so many years ago, and for them to make comment on what was happening around them.

The Emeritus Faculty's Oral History Program aims to provide an opportunity, through audio interviews carried out under comfortable, informal conditions, conducive of recall and elaboration by interviewees. The venue is usually the Emeritus Faculty office, though it may be the subject's home or office. The interviews are minimally structured, with the aim of letting the interview unfold as it will. Interviewees are encouraged to be as candid and speculative as they wish.

While the ANU Emeritus Faculty began its Oral History Project in 2008 the ANU Archives also has a collection of approximately 50 interviews produced in the 1980s and 1990s, when ANU had its own Oral History Program. This collection is now also available online and can be found at https://openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/handle/1885/15089
