UNC Asheville

Sourthern Highlands Research Center Oral History Collection

Collection Description: It is believed that Louis Silveri recorded all the interviews he conducted on open reel audio tapes. Although some of these tapes still exist, and are archived in Special Collections, the equipment to play these tapes is not available. At some time, the open reel tapes were transferred to audio cassette tape and/or CD, and it is thought interviews by Bruce Greenawalt and others were recorded on cassette tapes. Audio is not available for all interviews. Transcripts are available for many interviews and some draft transcripts are also in the collection of Louis Silveri Papers. Release forms were not obtained for some interviews, and these interviews cannot be copied, and the must be listened to and/or transcripts read in Special Collections.
