Initiated by the Pembroke Center Advisory Council in 1982, the Pembroke Center Oral History Project records the experiences of cis and trans women and non-binary members of Brown University and Pembroke College – the women’s college in Brown University until 1971. This website features digitized interviews, transcripts, biographies, and photographs by and about students, alums, faculty, and staff who studied and worked at Brown as early as 1907.
