We are conducting oral histories, especially to indentify participants other than leaders, to explore the role of a variety of political organizations, and to uncover issues that were hidden in contemporary accounts.
If you have suggestions for the Oral History segment, contact Lisa Rubens: email@example.com
[We are still looking for more people who were in the Republican Party or considered themselve right wing.]
We are still collecting archival material --including organizing materials, personal memoirs, letters with observations on the FSM.
