Oral History Guide Available

The IEEE Center for the History of Electrical Engineering recently completed the second volume in its "Sources in Electrical History" series. The new book, entitled Sources in Electrical History 2: Oral History Collections in U.S. Repositories, is now available to researchers to use as a guide to find oral history interviews with engineers, scientists, politicians, industrialists, laborers, and others that contain information on electrical, electronics, or computer technology. The guide summarizes the contents of over 1,000 taped interviews, stored in 63 depositories. An extensive index lists the subjects and proper names about which information can be found. The book joins the first volume of the series, Archives and Manuscript Collections in U.S. Repositories, in providing a ready reference of primary sources available to the researcher of the history of electrical and electronics technologies.

The guide is published by the Center for the History of Electrical Engineering. To obtain the guide, send a $15 check or money order made payable to "IEEE" to Center for the History of Electrical Engineering, Rutgers University, 39 Union Street, New Brunswick, N.J. 08903-5062.
