Throughout the country, we celebrate Archives Month in October. This is an opportunity to celebrate our written and oral history. Visit the Washington State Archives Month website and browse President Thompson’s oral histories with Puget Sound faculty from the 1940s-1970s. These interviews provide details of challenges, successes, and life at Puget Sound during President Thompson’s time at the University.
