ASC Opens More New Collections for Research Use

The Archives Service Center recently processed three new collections which are open for research use. The Pittsburgh Speech & Society Project conducted interviews with Pittsburgh-born residents with the goal of studying the sociolinguistics of Pittsburgh speech, known informally as 'Pittsburghese.' The collection consists of 48 interviews on 51 CDs. The Peace and Freedom Center of Pittsburgh Records contain meeting minutes, correspondence, posters, results from opinion polls and information concerning different events associated with the Pittsburgh-based anti-war group active in the 1960s and 1970s. The Pittsburgh Symphony Society Records consist of organizational records, committee activities, contracts, active and inactive Society membership cards, brochures, advertisements, financial records and ledgers, scrapbooks, and newspaper clippings. The Society was formed in 1927 to support the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
