Scope and Contents

Miscellaneous papers relating to the memoirists who were interviewed by the Oral History Office. Included are original papers, printed materials and microfilm copies of materials not retained by Columbia. One half of the collection consists of original notes, draft transcriptions, related correspondence and documents related to the Radio Pioneer Project. Of those papers only available on microfilm, about one-third have a list of contents While the majority of these papers relate to memoirists, a few acquired by the Oral History Office do not. In 1950 when these papares were given to Special Collections, those papers numerous enough to constitute separate collections were so processed.
