Duquesne University is a private Catholic university located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Third Alternative Oral History Project was created and produced as part of Duquesne University's public history graduate course Speaking to the Past: Oral History in Methodology and Practice, taught by Dr. Jennifer Taylor. The objective of this project is to preserve the memory of an organization that raised money to save the school in 1970-1971.
