I’d always asked people questions. Then in 1974 I discovered that there was a discipline, a society and a journal called Oral History for people like me. So this was my community! I’ve loved being part of it for 40+ years. It’s been crucial in helping my books and exhibitions emerge.
The Oral History Society has been a catalyst in my personal and professional development. The journal has provided support, advice and inspiration in equal measure. I await each edition of the journal and read it closely to not only understand the sector, but also appreciate the community that the Oral History Society has created.
