Tamiment Library, New York University, announced the formation of an

Oral History of the American Left project, under the direction of Paul Buhle and

Roger Keeran, to record the experiences of the veterans of radicalism in labor,

politics, and culture. The intent is to create a central repository for those

interviews that already exist and insure that many activists who have not yet

been interviewed will have their experiences recorded. In time a guide to the

tapes will be issued by the library. Inquiries should be addressed to the project at

Tamiment Library, New York University, 70 Washington Square, South, New

York, New York 10012.
