Introduction

These oral history interviews are the record of a person's memory and opinion about life in the Harrisburg area during the past. Because memory can be fallible and opinions can be varied, these records should not be treated as perfectly accurate accounts of the events that are discussed. It was simply not possible to fact-check all 150 lengthy and informative interviews. But the records show how the interviewees remember their past and this community, which was the essential purpose of the Highmark Blue Shield Living Legacy Series.

The Citizens' Advisory Committee was committed to interviewing a diverse and representative sample of the Harrisburg area's population. Both community leaders and everyday citizens were selected by the committee or nominated by the community. Most of these persons were pre-interviewed so that we had an idea of which topics could be most usefully covered. Interviewees were given the opportunity to stop the taping if they wanted to re-word their answer or take a break, but such interruptions were rare.

If the transcriber of an interview later discovered an obvious error, that mistake was corrected, but otherwise the text that follows is a record of what the person said. We are deeply grateful for the interviewees' cooperation in this project, and we are confident the community will be gratified, too.
