The Pitkin Oral History Project of Priscilla Welsh consists of a collection of 91 original audiocassette tapes recording interviews she made with Pitkin, members of his family, friends, Goddard College faculty, students, trustees, and other people. In addition to the cassette tapes there is one 7" reel of audio taped interview material, a cassette copy of the 7" reel tape, and one folder of related correspondence and documents.
