TABLE OF CONTENTS

Transcript List

This list of transcripts is arranged alphabetically by last name of the first person in each group of persons interviewed (assigned a transcript number), and includes the individual names in each group (no transcript number, but a reference to the transcript number in which they participate). An asterisk marks those interviews in which Albert Tucker also participated. The original number of typewritten pages of each transcript gives an indication of its length, with a total of 614 standard 8.5x11 pages of transcripts, not including the introduction, abstracts and index.
