Historian Emeritus of the United States Senate
Author of Doing Oral History
Drawing on forty years of experience as an interviewer, U.S. Senate Historian Emeritus Don Ritchie will reflect on the work culture of the oral historian and how it has developed through changing technologies, economies, and expectations. He will consider how that work culture influences the interviews we conduct and the questions we ask.
