Haskins Laboratories

AN ORAL HISTORY OF HASKINS LABORATORIES

Following are several recordings and their transcription covering the early history of Haskins Laboratories as remembered by the laboratories’ founders and other early participants. Most of the recordings were made in the fall of 1988. The last recording was made in February 1991. The first recording session began on August 12, 1988, the occasion of Caryl Haskin’s 80th birthday. Three senior members of Haskins Laboratories were present: Caryl Haskins, Franklin Cooper, and Seymour Hutner. Patrick W. Nye organized this oral history and and conducted the recording sessions.
