Transcriber's Notes:

[TR: The interview headers presented here contain all information included in the original, but may have been
rearranged for readability. Also, some ages and addresses have been drawn from blocks of information on
subsequent interview pages. Names in brackets were drawn from text of interviews.]

[TR: Some interviews were date-stamped; these dates have been added to interview headers in brackets.
Where part of date could not be determined -- has been substituted. These dates do not appear to represent
actual interview dates, rather dates completed interviews were received or perhaps transcription dates.]
