Scope and content
Series consists of the documentary residue of Doug Cox’s function as collector and co-creator of oral histories, which was carried out in support of his function as an author and historian.
Doug Cox had an established work pattern of visiting his historical contributors, and conducting structured interviews on the record. Frequently, photographs would be presented as a point of conversation, and his interviewees provided identifying information as to who, what, and which time period is depicted in the photographic prop. After the interview, Joyce Cox produced typewritten transcripts of the exchange.
Correspondence of tape recordings to text transcriptions are not one-to-one; numerous tapes exist which lack an associated transcript, and likewise numerous transcripts exist which lack an associated tape.
Cox presumably used these recordings and transcripts as reference materials, as many are interfiled within his Research Files series.
Series is arranged into 121 files or portions of files, with two emergent subseries which encompass an additional 24 files (or portions of).
