Oral history interviews

Transcripts with log sheets

An oral history interview program was commissioned in 2003 to record the experiences and reminiscences of key contributors to the department’s history, including former ministers, directors and staff. Most of the initial 19 interviews recorded specifically for the Agriculture History Project are available below. The J.D. Somerville Collection in the State Library of South Australia has the original recordings and the duplicate set of tapes used by PIRSA during the transcription process will be lodged with State Records in due course.
