Reading Oral Histories
The narratives on this website are intended to evoke the feeling of being told a story. This is quite different from a written book or letter, or a prepared speech. Instead, the stories presented here are people’s memories and opinions, and should not be taken as complete or verified accounts of events.
Conversations have been audio recorded and then transcribed. Then, the storyteller and/or interviewer have lightly edited them to provide clarity and to ensure they represent others in a respectful way.
