Does the Veterans History Project accept artifacts and other three-dimensional items?

No. The Veterans History Project only accepts audio/video recordings or original manuscript material (such as letters), diaries and photographs.

Please see "What We Collect" for more information.

We provide a list of related repositories who also collect and preserve oral histories, memoirs, and other three-dimensional materials beyond our collection scope related to veterans and their wartime experiences. Please consider these as you decide where to donate your materials. In addition, housing your materials with others of a similar topic makes them more visible to researchers focused on that topic.
