From a release by the director of the Women and Leadership Archives at Loyola University:

The Women and Leadership Archives and the Ann Ida Gannon, BVM, Center for Women in Leadership, Loyola University Chicago, are seeking proposals for an oral history project "The Peace Studies Program:  From Mundelein to Loyola."  The main result of the Peace Studies Oral History Project is to interview key narrators to learn how and why the Peace Studies Program began at Mundelein College and subsequently, how and why it became part of Loyola University Chicago.  The Project will facilitate the creation of materials that share the Peace Studies history with Loyola students, faculty, staff, and administrators.  In addition, information will be used on various Loyola websites that will reach a wider, general audience. 

Funding is available for a contractor to conduct and transcribe 6 interviews, in addition to creating web and brochure content.  The project runs from September 2014 to May 2015, with the understanding the work may be completed sooner.  Travel inside and outside greater Chicago, IL, is required and the contractor will need a car to do so, with mileage reimbursement provided.  Also, a longer (4 hours one way) car trip may be needed for one or more of the interviews and expenses will be covered.

The successful proposer is an experienced interviewer, who can demonstrate oral history skills by prior work of at least one year on an oral history project, completing multiple interviews and accompanying paperwork.  In addition, the contractor must work well with members of a team. 

For more information and/or the complete RFP document, please contact Nancy Freeman at or 773-508-8432.  Proposals are due July 28th
