Abstract

In this article the author reflects on three community oral history projects he conducted in Philadelphia between 1978 and 1984. Brief histories of these projects are used as an opportunity for reflections on urban folk history, and some of the forces and often unacknowledged “purposes” of the oral historian that shape interviews and the history that emerges from them.
