What information is made public in the Veterans History Project online collection?

The veteran’s name, state of birth and service history information, as they appear on the Biographical Data Form, are made available via the Veterans History Project (VHP) collection service summary (biographical information). The interviewer’s/donor’s name, affiliation and contents of the contributed collection are also included.

The service summary (biographical information) may not include links to collection material such as the interview. Collections that include content viewable online are identified by a VIEW DIGITIZED COLLECTION link. Online display of collection materials is not exhaustive due to the volume of submissions received by the VHP.
