  • Abstract

    Part 12: Do not want informant preparing but you do need to prepare for the interview but to retain an element of naivety. Have had one or two interviews where the person was mad. Went down to Bath to interview a disciple of Sylvia Pankhurst. She started to fantasise about a hot line to Winston Churchill. Interviewed relatives of Mrs Winteringham, Liberal MP. One of them, who was a lawyer, refused consent.

  • Description

    Life story interview with Brian Harrison, original committee members of the Oral History Society and Emeritus Professor of history at University of Oxford.
