I can certainly understand not wanting to make grades available, but I'm having trouble understanding why there would be an expectation of privacy on the part of an oral history interviewer, regardless of their status as a student. The standard for oral history is one of transparency, including the names of interviewer and narrator, except in unusual circumstances. In other words, what is it about the interviewers being students that assumes a right to privacy? And would they have a right to privacy in perpetuity?
