Oakland Army Base Front with Sign
Oakland Port of Embarkation, ca. 1943.

The Oakland Army Base Oral History Project is an in-depth, interview-based research project funded by the City of Oakland and the Port of Oakland to implement cultural resources mitigation measures recommended in the Oakland Army Base Area Redevelopment Plan Environmental Impact Report (2002). The goal of this project is to document the core functions of the base during its period of operation (1941-1998); the social life and work culture on the base; the impact of the base on the surrounding area, from the community of West Oakland to the Pacific Rim; and the process of base closure and realignment.
