Pop Up’s Archival Audio Starter Kit

October is American Archives Month. In honor, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite collections of archival audio, sorted by topic. Take this chance to explore the wealth of historical audio searchable in Pop Up Archive.

Twentieth Century Social Movements

War and the White House

Oral Histories

Music and the Arts


Together, these collections present hundreds of hours of listening into the past. American Archive Month is the perfect excuse to dive into decades of painstakingly preserved audio.
