Abstract

Revisiting oral history interviews with secondary analysis in mind raises a number of issues for oral historians and others interested in archived data. Taking the example of a return to a set of interviews with the founders of the geriatric specialty in the UK, where issues of race and ethnicity emerge from a subsequent reading, this article explores whether questions raised are ethical or theoretical. It concludes by suggesting the need to be aware of the social and historical contexts of data, both original and subsequent, when revisiting oral history interview material.
