This is part one of two episodes on tips for doing oral history interviews. In this episode, Kristyn Scorsone talks to Dr. Timothy Stewart-Winter to find out why oral history is used to document the experiences of marginalized groups and hear some of his practical tips for doing oral history interviews. Stewart-Winter is a historian at Rutgers-Newark and the author of Queer Clout: Chicago and the Rise of Gay Politics, which won the 2017 John Boswell Prize for the outstanding book in the field of LGBT history, awarded by the American Historical Association Committee on LGBT History. He is now working on the first book-length study of the scandal surrounding the 1964 arrest of White House aide Walter Jenkins on disorderly conduct charges.
