Abstract

The technique of oral history is a valuable means of collecting and storing personal history and experience. This paper briefly describes the process and then looks at how the engineering professions have used this technique both in Australia and New Zealand. IE Australia has established an excellent program while nothing equivalent currently exists in New Zealand. However some interviews with engineers has been undertaken in New Zealand and this work is described. The paper concludes with the recommendation that a similar program to the one in Australia be established in New Zealand.
