The Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST) has just completed uploading its entire collection of 1800 oral histories onto its website. The oral history collection is still available on the Library of Congress website; however, the ADST interviews have tables of contents and are in an easy-to-read PDF format. In addition, the oral history page has Google Custom Search, which makes it much easier to look through the entire collection.
