Recording notes: This interview was recorded in the Rare Book Room of Falvey Memorial Library. The interviewee may occasionally tap or hit the table for emphasis, which is audible in the recording. In addition, the room is not sound-proof and other people were in the room besides the interviewer and interviewee, so you may hear some background noises or sounds from the audience members. This recording has been lightly edited to remove background noise from an HVAC system and reduce overly-long pauses.
