Series I. Oral History 2000-2004

Scope and Content Notes:

The John P. Hoerr Oral History Collection includes a significant oral history series. Throughout his research, Hoerr conducted interviews with various union members, religious leaders, family members, or others who may have been involved with Harry Davenport, Tom Quinn, or Monsigner Rice. These interviews were conducted between 2000 and 2004 and provided Hoerr with imperative information on the Cold War Era. Some of the most important interviews were conducted with Tom Quinn and Monsignor Rice. These interviews are helpful to portray the true emotion of the time and how sincere the House Un-American Activity Committee acted toward possible Communist infiltration of labor unions. The interviews with Tom Quinn and Monsignor Rice also show where the paths of Davenport, Quinn, and Rice crossed.

This series includes microcassettes of some interviews. In addition, all interviews have been transcribed by Hoerr, including those that are not available on microcassette. This series is arranged alphabetically. The exception to this alphabetical arrangement is a tape that contains an interview with both James Connolly and Tom Quinn.
