The Antarctic Deep Freeze oral history project was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and supported by the Antarctic Deep Freeze Association. It consists of taped and transcribed oral history interviews with south polar pioneers to capture individual memory and personal perspective on US involvement in Antarctica during the landmark 1950s, when the physical, scientific, and diplomatic foundations for today's Antarctic operations were built.

All interviewees were invited to review and edit the transcripts of their interviews. Significant additions are enclosed in square brackets. The original paper copies and unaltered tapes have been deposited in the library of the National Science Foundation.
