Oral history talk and addressing release forms

Elizabeth and Suzanne,

I would agree with Suzanne, that an agreement or a release form is important, as it would make clear to future generations if the interviewee wanted the material restricted in any way, or did not want any restrictions.

I hope that interviews are offered to repositories even if the interviewee is not well-known publicly. A good reflective interview on life as we lesser mortals live, and remember it can be a rich resource for future researchers.
