Allison Tracy began her work in oral history in 2002 with the University of Nevada Oral History Program (UNOHP), eventually interviewing for a multi-year project on the history of women’s athletics at the University of Nevada. In 2009, she returned to UNOHP as its coordinator and served as one of the editors for the resulting book, “We Were All Athletes: Title IX and Women’s Athletics at the University of Nevada.”
In 2012, Allison became the oral historian for the Stanford Historical Society, working on a three-year project to document Stanford University’s history through the stories of prominent faculty members and administrators. She came to the Kentucky Historical Society as oral history administrator in July 2015.
Allison holds an M.A. in oral history from Columbia University and a B.A. in English literature and sociology from the University of Nevada.
