An oral history, on the other hand, is considered by historians to be a "primary source," raw data from which they will, in combination with other raw data, create historical narratives. Although a historian might also use a magazine interview or a videotaped speech as a primary source, an oral history is a document created by themselves or another historian through the informal recording of a dialogue between interviewer and interviewee. Although edited by the interviewer for flow and consistency, and by the interviewee to confirm that his or her words have been appropriately captured, an oral history transcript is relatively unedited when compared to other forms of interview.

An oral history, on the other hand, is considered by historians to be a "primary source," raw data from which they will, in combination with other primary and secondary sources, create historical narratives. Although a historian might also use a magazine interview or a videotaped speech as a primary source, an oral history is a document created by themselves or another historian through the informal recording of a dialogue between interviewer and interviewee. Although edited by the interviewer to conform with the [https://brand-experience.ieee.org/guidelines/social-media/social-media-overview/ IEEE Social Media Operations and Best Practices Guide], flow, style and consistency, and by the interviewee to confirm that his or her words have been appropriately captured, an oral history transcript is relatively unedited when compared to other forms of interview.

But as a result, there may be a misunderstanding about what these are. Since they are minimally edited, they may not "read" like other interviews you have seen. They may seem disorganized, reflecting the differences between a conversation and a printed story. Statements made by interviewees have not been checked for accuracy. We hope you will enjoy and find useful the stories of these fascinating men and women, but please take this disclaimer into account as you make use of them.

"Simply put, oral history collects spoken memories and personal commentaries of historical significance through recorded interviews." Donald A. Ritchie, Doing Oral History, 1995

You might be wondering why we call these documents "oral histories" rather than "interviews." An interview is a finished product that you might see in the newspaper, on TV, or in some other medium. It is meant to convey particular information.

An oral history, on the other hand, is considered by historians to be a "primary source," raw data from which they will, in combination with other primary and secondary sources, create historical narratives. Although a historian might also use a magazine interview or a videotaped speech as a primary source, an oral history is a document created by themselves or another historian through the informal recording of a dialogue between interviewer and interviewee. Although edited by the interviewer to conform with the IEEE Social Media Operations and Best Practices Guide, flow, style and consistency, and by the interviewee to confirm that his or her words have been appropriately captured, an oral history transcript is relatively unedited when compared to other forms of interview.

The following oral histories represent the views of the interviewee and they do not necessarily reflect the opinions of either IEEE or ETHW partner societies. Interviews should be viewed as a part of the historical record and as a window into the environment many of our members and colleagues have faced during their careers.

For more information on IEEE's Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct please visit the IEEE Code of Ethics

The Engineering and Technology History Wiki is determined to preserve as source material for the future historians of technology the personal memories of pioneers in the electrical, electronics, and computer fields, the technologists who transformed the world in the 20th and 21st centuries. We also preserve the personal memories of those who have played major roles in the various engineering associations.

When we first began collecting these interviews, we assumed that the only people who would see the results would be professional historians. With the advent of the Web, text recognition, and related technologies, it is suddenly possible for us to make these wonderful documents available to anyone, any time.

But as a result, there may be a misunderstanding about what these are. Since they are minimally edited, they may not "read" like other interviews you have seen. They may seem disorganized, reflecting the differences between a conversation and a printed story. Statements made by interviewees have not been checked for accuracy. We hope you will enjoy and find useful the stories of these fascinating men and women, but please take this disclaimer into account as you make use of them.
