Administrative history

The Scottish Oral History Centre (SOHC) was set up within the Department of History at the University of Strathclyde in 1995. Since its foundation the SOHC has been involved in a wide range of teaching, research and outreach activities designed primarily to encourage the use of ‘best practice’ oral history methodology in Scotland. Until 2005, the SOHC was directed by Professor Callum Brown, since then by Professor Arthur McIvor.

Archival history

Transferred from SOHC during 2015, in error as part of SOHCA/016 ('Asbestos-related diseases in the West of Scotland' / SOHC 004). No other SOHC Archive ID had been assigned to this interview. The original recording was made in 1999 using a cassette recorder. In 2016, it was digitised to uncompressed, unaltered 24 bit/96kHz BWF format (for preservation) with 16bit/48kHz MP3 surrogates (for access).
