Carlton-Anthony Tampa Oral History Project

Day by day our present is added to our past. The USF Libraries commitment to preserve our state's history is evident through it's oral history program. There are many individuals whose lives and careers have been impacted through their association with our state, and our state is a better place because of that association. We collect these spoken memories and personal commentaries of historical significance before it is too late and they are lost forever. We preserve this record of firsthand life experiences to benefit subsequent generations of students and scholars.

The USF Tampa Library Oral History Program began in 1997 with an endowment from Piers Anthony and his wife Carol Jacob. Additional support was provided through a gift from Doyle E. Carlton, Jr. This founding collection is named in honor of Piers Anthony, his wife Carol Jacob, and Doyle E. Carlton, Jr. The collection includes interviews with prominent individuals in politics and community development in Tampa and surrounding areas in Florida. As an open collection, more content will be added over time.
