Gary Ross Mormino donated 19 oral history cassettes to the Western Historical Manuscript Collection-St. Louis on September 29, 1986.
Mormino conducted interviews with Italian immigrants residing in the "Hill" neighborhood in south St. Louis as part of the research for his book, Immigrants On The Hill, Italian Americans in St. Louis 1882-1982. The University of Illinois Press published the book in 1986. A copy is located on the WHMC-St. Louis bookshelf, call number 330 Immi Mor.
The collection complements additional interviews with Italian immigrants conducted by Mormino held as part of WHMC's Immigrant Oral History project, tapes T645-T670. The Immigrant Oral History Project also includes interviews with Italian immigrants not connected with Mormino's book. These appear on tapes T005-T006; T090; T227; T259; T261-T262; T316; T337; T406-T411; T451; T519; T824.
The Italian Immigrant Oral History project tapes have not been transcribed. Only Bishop Charles Koester and Elmer S. Wood have signed consent form. Arranged alphabetically.
