Newly digitized sound recordings of oral history interviews with people who knew Herbert Hoover are now available. The recordings complement and add to the bulk of the collection, which consists of transcripts of interviews with political leaders, businessmen, military officers, journalists, writers, physicians, secretaries, aides, friends, and associates of Herbert Hoover, relating their recollections of him in various capacities.

Herbert Hoover at Stanford University is the chief topic of the newly digitized recordings, although one captures President Lyndon B. Johnson’s remarks on August 12, 1965, when he signed the bill authorizing the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch, Iowa.
