Preserving a Legacy
The Tuskegee Airmen Oral History Project
To preserve the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first military pilots of color, Cadence Group preserved and organized more than 750 oral history interviews for the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Historic Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama. This project included processing an estimated 2,760 folders and their contents consisting of correspondence, still photos, and printed transcripts as well as historic photographs, videotape copies of interviews, self-published books or pamphlets, and other memorabilia.
Tasks included performing preservation maintenance, and arranging, describing, and cataloging organizational records and multiple formats/media into a database with a finding aid for locating archived items.
