David Goldfield student oral history project on change in the Charlotte region
Scope and Contents
The Goldfield Student Oral History Project on change in the Charlotte region collection consists of interviews conducted by UNC Charlotte upper level undergraduate students in Dr. David Goldfield's history classes between 1990 and 2006. The purpose of these interviews was to chronicle the significant changes that occurred in the Charlotte region from the 1930s to the beginning of the 21st century. The interviews document the transition of rural areas in the region, whose residents benefited from the increased job opportunities that the rapidly expanding city offered and from the economic development and technological advances it brought to their communities. The collection also illustrates the notable in-migration of people from other parts of the country to this region in the latter half of the 20th century.
