Video interviews

These interviews are not edited, and are of variable technical quality. Many of them are fascinating and historically important, some are quite entertaining, but they are source material, not finished products. Also available is a two-hour edited version of selected portions of the 1990-1991 interviews, produced by Sterling Newberry as a companion to his book "EMSA and its People". To inquire about obtaining a copy of an interview, contact the Archivist, Mike Marko.
