The Cleveland Regional Oral History Collection is a product of the Center for Public History +Digital Humanities, cofounded by Mark Tebeau and Mark Souther. The collection consists of audio interviews collected since 2002. Students, faculty, public school teachers and researchers from throughout Northeast Ohio have contributed to the collection, which covers a breadth of topics in Cleveland and regional history.

Notable series in the collection include interviews on Shaker Heights, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, the City Club of Cleveland, Midtown Cleveland, University Circle Incorporated, Cleveland Artists Foundation, and the Cleveland chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Additional interviews cover a wide variety of topics in Cleveland history, including neighborhood and institutional history, and political, social, educational and environmental history.

More materials from the Cleveland Regional Oral History Project will be published in the near future. For access to unpublished materials, contact the Department of History at Cleveland State University or visit csudigitalhumanities.org for related news and additional information.
