From the "Interview History" page: "Two initial interview sessions were held on May 2 and June 3, 1969... the two final sessions were (held) on April 17 and June 28, 1973... The transcripts of the first two session were sent to Professor Joslyn on April 11, 1973, to read over before the next session. The transcripts of the third and fourth sessions were sent to him on September 6, 1973. All were returned before the end of that month, meticulously edited by Professor Joslyn... The final transcript was also reviewed by Dr. Joslyn..." - Ruth Teiser, Interviewer and Editor, 19 August 1974, Regional Oral History Office, University of California at Berkeley.
Listings sometimes incorrectly state that this book was published in 1969. Rather misleading given the fact that the final two interviews for this book were in 1973, the transcripts for this book were reviewed and edited in 1973, and the actual book was published by UC Berkeley in a first and numbered edition in August, 1974.
