Collection Descriptive Notes
In a recording made expressly for Raven McDavid, Maurer discusses the nature of his work in sociolinguistics along with a description of his field methods. He illustrates his talk with excerpts from interviews with criminals and drug addicts.
Collection Technical Notes
This master is almost certainly a copy of the original made by Maurer. (Note: the spelling “Mauer” on the back of the box is not correct.) Both the original and this copy were probably made in the early ’60s. Note: the original recording may have been made on a wire recorder; the location is the University of Louisvile.The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
