Quincy University -- TPS -- Quincy University Veterans History Project

Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources at Quincy University

Veterans History Project

Quincy University is an official partner for the Library of Congress Veterans History Project.

Interviews collected by Quincy University will be evaluated for inclusion with the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress, as well as a copy will be placed in the Quincy University Brenner Library, Illinois Veterans Home of Quincy, and the local public library.

Quincy University will work with anyone interested in conducting an interview with a veteran. The staff of the Library of Congress TPS program at Quincy University can work with teachers, scout leaders, and youth group leaders in preparing a group of youth to conduct interviews. There will be no charge for these preparation sessions.
