Abstract: In the fall of 2006, Bob Cone, President of the Rotary Club of Greensboro, spoke to fellow Rotarian Patricia Sullivan, Chancellor of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, about his growing interest in preserving the city’s history by interviewing club members. Cone asked Sullivan about the possibility of the University conducting an oral history project in collaboration with the Rotary Club. The University Archives and Manuscripts department, under the guidance of University Archivist Betty Carter, had been successful in developing similar projects, including the Women Veterans Historical Collection, which includes numerous oral histories. Soon the partnership was underway.
