Studs Terkel Has Passed Away

Studs Terkel has passed away. The NY Times has an obituary. I always liked the work of Terkel since I first ran across him in college. I thought the Good War was the best of what I’d read. His interview with EB Sledge was impresive. Hard Times, since it was written at the end of the 60’s, has a perhaps unfortunate way of being a comment on the 60’s themselves. I suppose no oral history can not be a reflection of the times it is given in.
