The interview was conducted by Richard F. Docter, professor of psychology, California State University, Northridge. Hobby printer and member of the Rounce & Coffin Club. B.A., UC Santa Barbara; Ph.D., Stanford.
Processing of Interview:
The editing of the manuscript was done by Deborah Young, assistant editor, Oral History Program. She checked the verbatim transcript of the interview against the original tape recordings, editing for spelling, punctuation, and paragraphing, and verifying proper nouns. Words and phrases she inserted are bracketed. The edited transcript was submitted to Dahlstrom for review. He passed away during that process (September 21, 1980), and the manuscript, along with other papers, was given by his wife to a professional colleague, David Davies. Eventually it found its way back to the Oral History Program office, where it was reviewed and prepared for final typing by Mitch Tuchman, senior editor. Mrs. Dahlstrom and Docter were helpful in answering remaining editorial queries. The introduction to the volume was written by printer David Palmer. Other front matter and the index were prepared by Oral History Program staff.
