Oral History Program DVD List

We offer unique multimedia products that highlight some of the great achievements in engineering of the last century. Since 1976 the founders of the Edison Tech Center have been gathering material on 20th century pioneers at General Electric. Today our library includes video interviews and other visual material from around the globe.

A great way to support the Edison Tech Center’s mission is to purchase DVDs from our media program. For refined videos good for use in classrooms see our Video Series page. For oral histories with some of the greatest electrical and mechanical engineers of our time, see our list below. See our donate page for instructions how to order a DVD and use the Show Code and name to specify which shows you’d like.
