Scope and Content Note
This collection is the work of two separate classes taught by Anne William, Professor of Economics at Bates College: First Year Seminar FYS 187 during the winter term of 1996, and Economics s37 during the short-term session in the spring of 1998. Together, the two projects comprise 45 interviews with 50 individuals. Recordings and transcripts are available for all except one interview. For this one interview the recording was faulty and in place of a transcript the interviewers wrote a summary of the interview.
Alphabetical by interviewee.
Project reports are available in the Reading Room of the Archives.
