Bernard LaFayette Oral History Project

Inventory


Series 1. Tapes, 2002-2003
3 containers (.5 linear feet)
Contains mini DV digital video cassettes of 15 mixed and 46 unmixed recordings. The mixes were transferred to 9 VHS tapes. In 2006, through a URI Foundation grant and funding through the Office of the President, the tapes were duplicated in house by Mark Dionne into digital WMV files. The files are located on the University Media Server and on a storage device housed in URI Library Special Collections.

To view the interviews, please reference the The URI Special Collections Page page for this manusript group where you can click on the interview number to link to the digital video.
The recordings were filmed and mixed by Timothy Tierney at the URI Media Center from January 2002-January 2003.


Arrangement: Arranged by unmixed recordings and the final VHS and mini DV mixed recordings. The original labeling on each recording was maintained. In some cases, the dates were not recorded during the interview or labeled on the physical tape. The date for those interviews is given as the known year of the recording.

Series 2. Transcripts and Index, 2006
1 container (.5 linear feet)
Contains transcripts created from the interviews by Tape Transcription Center, Boston MA. The transcripts are in both paper and electronic formats. The electronic forms are in MS Word and in PDF. A card file index was prepared by Prof. Findlay and later revised from the transcripts and the data entered in an electronic spread sheet, MS Excel by a student intern.
