Oral History Program
Person being interviewed for the Oral History ProgramRecordings
Do you have a story to tell about your life in Naperville? Those participating in the Oral History Program will be part of a session recording with an interviewer who will ask questions about their lives. To date nearly 250 narratives provide a glimpse into the life and times of Naperville residents that might not otherwise be recorded.

Some of the topics covered in the oral histories include:
  • Changes in the town
  • Family life
  • The Great Depression in Naperville
  • Growing up in Naperville
  • Public Safety
  • Working at the Kroehler Manufacturing Company and other businesses
  • World War II and military experiences
