Immediate Source of Acquisition note

Tamiment Library first began conducting interviews for this collection in 2008. Interviews taken by Jeremy Sorgen on behalf of the library in 2008 were established as the Squatters' Collective Oral Histories Project, OH 068. In 2014, Amy Starecheski donated an additional 37 interviews, which were incorporated into this collection. The accession number associated with this gift is 2014.140.

Processing Information note

This collection was created in two parts. Interviews from this first part of this project were created by a Jeremy Sorgen, an undergraduate student at New York University, on behalf of the Tamiment Library. Interviews from the second part of this project were created by Amy Starecheski for her scholarly research and later donated to Tamiment Library. Upon receipt of this second set of interviews, a finding aid was created to describe the entire collection, at which point interviews were divided into two series based on creator. Biographical and contextual information accompanying interviews were provided by Amy Starecheski, and later modified to conform to current archival descriptive standards (DACS).
