Goldhaber, Michael.
Oral history interview with Michael Henry Goldhaber, 1995 July 20.
This interview was conducted as part of a doctoral dissertation, the focus of which is the study of "radical" scientists in America, 1968-1974. The format of the interview incorporates background questions on childhood interests in science (physics) and politics; family political and scientific histories; interviewee's formal education (to include political and scientific histories; scientific specilizaitn); perceptions on local, national and global events up to 1974; those factors attributing to one's radicalization; the interviewee's experiences and impressions of radicalism within physics, most especially within the American Physical Society; involvement in the creation of and subsequent participation in radical science organizations (such as Scientists and Engineers for Social and Political Action); specific questions on interviewee's social, political and philosophical development as impacting the conduct of physics research and teaching; and in-depth discussion of physics-society relations as influenced by internal and external socio-political struggles (such as the Civil Rights, anti-Vietman War, and Women's Libration Movements).
