John Paul Deley | Oral History Transcriptions 

On Episode 36 of Veteran Voices: The Oral History Podcast, we talk about transcribing oral history interviews with John Paul Deley, Director of the Detre Library & Archives at the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.



John Paul Deley is enthusiastic about preserving history.  As head of the Senator John Heinz History Center’s Detre Library and Achive, his passion for saving public history is more than a job, it’s been a calling for nearly four decades.

In this episode, John Paul explains the importance of preserving oral histories through written transcripts, a particularly useful platform that not only  serves scholars and historians, but also the public.  The Heinz History Center’s expertise and rigorous methodology applied to producing written transcripts is unsurpassed.
