In 1984, Dr. Mel Steely of the University of West Georgia's Department of History launched the Georgia's Political Heritage Program to document contemporary Georgia politics and political life. Over the following decades, Steely conducted recorded interviews with governors, senators, representatives, political activists, political staffers, and other individuals. In 2018, Dr. Michael Camp re-launched the program as the Georgia Political Papers and Oral History Program. Selected interviews from the program are available online at the Digital Library of Georgia at https://dlg.usg.edu/collection/uwg_phc.
Some of the interviews have been transcribed, and these transcriptions are available alongside the interviews from which they have been drawn.
