The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum launched an Oral History Project in May 2013, with the goal of collecting the stories of those who served on board the historic aircraft carrier Intrepid from 1943 to 1974. The Museum also collects oral histories from people associated with the submarine Growler, the space shuttle orbiter Enterprise and the supersonic airliner Concorde.
The Intrepid Museum’s oral histories are a core component of the Museum’s collections and will be used to help educate generations of visitors. These interviews vividly depict triumphs, tragedies and even occasional comedies. They infuse passion and humanity into the technology on display at the Museum.
