We are working to digitize 273 audio cassette recordings made by ILR Professor James Gross of lectures by — and interviews with — those people most knowledgeable about the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), many of whom are no longer living. In writing what is considered the authoritative history of the organization, Gross conducted interviews with NLRB staff and others who worked with the board, and organized conferences and lectures on the NLRB. These recordings document specific episodes in the history of the organization and capture what is missing in legal and government records.
