History and Politics Outloud
HPOL is a searchable multimedia database documenting and delivering authoritative audio relevant to American history and politics. This project is supported by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Teaching With Technology Program in collaboration with Michigan State University and the National Gallery of the Spoken Word. Other website support from Northwestern University Library, School of Speech, Office of the Provost, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Political Science.
HPOL is a collection of invaluable audio materials, some available for the first time on this website, capturing significant political and historical events and personalities of the twentieth century. The materials range from formal addresses delivered in public settings to private telephone conversations conducted from the innermost recesses of the White House. Our aim is to provide an accessible source of audio information to enliven instruction and scholarship in history and politics and to enable easy access for all persons to the rich audio archives of American history and politics.
Additionally, HPOL is committed to providing the audio clips that their audience wants to hear. If you cannot locate a relevant audio clip on our site, let us know what you are looking for and why you think it would be valuable to share with others. If we can find your audio file, we will post it.
