Oral History: Studs Terkel - Conversations with America

Well-designed and executed by the Chicago Historical Society, "Conversations with America" is a tribute to Studs Terkel, for over fifty years a hardworking radio interviewer, oral historian and storyteller. Organized around the extensive interviews that Studs did for his books, each section contains dozens of audio clips of his long-form interviews with the famous and the merely fascinating. A biographical folder includes audio clips recounting his family history in Chicago and a multimedia interview about his books, and about writing oral history and documenting everyday life. <>
