Out and about: Oral history interviews today and tomorrow

I'll be out of the office, off campus, and away from email and phones today as we capture two more oral history interviews, with a third scheduled for tomorrow morning. We are honored and pleased to take as our numbers 102, 103, and 104, the following OHSU faculty members:

102: Rodney Beals, M.D., orthopedic surgeon and former chair of the department
103: William Toffler, M.D., Family Medicine
104: Peter Goodwin, M.D., emeritus, Family Medicine

It's no secret that Toffler and Goodwin are and have been vocal and public foes over the issue of physician-assisted suicide (Toffler anti, Goodwin pro), and it should come as no surprise that the interviews will probe that delicate issue. Stay tuned for details!

As a reminder, you can see a complete list of interviewees and access transcript indexes (plus search across all indexes) on our web site; once processed, all transcripts and tapes are listed in the catalog and made available for checkout through the OHSU Main Library.
