In 2001, the Archives of Women in Science and Engineering (WISE Archives) received a $25,000
grant from the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation to begin conducting an oral history project
focusing on women in chemistry and chemical engineering.
To date, approximately 56 interviews have been completed with the funding provided by the Dreyfus
Foundation and other private donors, and the WISE Archives is in the process of making the
interviews available in a variety of formats, via transcripts and digitized audio.
To hear more about this project, please listen to an interview with the Curator. If you are interested
in participating in or supporting this project, please contact the Archives of Women in Science and
