Walter W. Stiern Library

CSU Bakersfield

The library maintains the Dust Bowl Migration Digital Archives. The core of the Dust Bowl Migration Archives is a series of 57 oral history interviews that developed from the California Odyssey Project's Oral History Program, funded in 1980 by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The interviews focus on residents who migrated to the San Joaquin Valley from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, and Kansas between 1924 and 1939.
