The "Guide to Taking Oral History of Bankruptcy Judges" is a step-by-step manual to aid the judge and the interviewer as they plan and carry-out the taking of an oral history. The Guide includes suggestions for procedures and techniques, as well as an outline of possible questions and areas to be covered, release forms, and information concerning transcription. Though geared to the experiences of bankruptcy judges, this guide also will provide assistance to anyone taking oral histories of judges in other fields, as well as of attorneys and other professionals. The Guide was prepared by the NCBJ Archives and History Committee and is based on "Saving Yesterday Today for Tomorrow: A Guide to Oral History for the Bench and Bar” by Carole Hicke, as distributed by the Ninth Judicial Circuit Historical Society.
