Congratulations to OHMA Co-Director and Columbia Center for Oral History Research Director, MARY MARSHALL CLARK, on being awarded the 2017 Forrest C. Pogue Award from Oral History in the Mid-Atlantic Region!
Since 1979, OHMAR has recognized and promoted high standards in the field of oral history through the Pogue Award, an annual award for outstanding and continuing contributions to oral history. The award honors Forrest C. Pogue, a pioneer in the use of oral history in combat during World War II and an early president of the Oral History Association.
Mary Marshall—along with sociologist and OHMA co-founder Peter Bearman—was the co-principal investigator of The September 11, 2001 Oral History Narrative and Memory Project, which documented the experiences of over 600 New Yorkers in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.
She is also the director of the Center for Oral History Research’s Guantánamo: Rule of Law Oral History Project, an examination of the loss of habeas corpus, torture, and related constitutional protections.
Mary Marshall is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Columbia University's Oral History MA program, which was created in 2008. She was president of the Oral History Association from 2001 to 2002. Mary Marshall has served on the OHMAR Board and is a lifetime member of the organization.
