John Novak Digital Interview Collection

The John Novak Digital Interview Collection consists of oral histories about immigration, migration, and the Civil Rights Movement. The interviewees, who range in age from 20 to 90, speak of their experiences moving to and within the United States.


The Marygrove College Archives documents the unique history of the college and provides source material for those interested in evaluating the college's history, academic programs, and cultural impact.

The Archives is currently under construction. Please contact Jennifer Meacham if you have any questions.
