Teresa Barnett, editor, edited the interview. She checked the verbatim transcript against the original tape recordings, edited for punctuation, paragraphing, and spelling, and verified proper names. Words and phrases inserted by the editor have been bracketed. The edited transcript was sent to Bloch in September 1988. He died before reviewing the transcript, and thus some of the proper names remain unverified. Steven J. Novak, editor, prepared the table of contents and interview history. Richard Candida Smith, principal editor, compiled the index.
