This collection contains 150 oral histories conducted between 1999-2001 covering a variety of topics related to tobacco control,
including but not limited to public health policy, anti-smoking advocacy, second hand smoke, health education programs and
cost-recovery lawsuits. All of the collection is in the form of audio tapes.
These oral histories were created as part of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education efforts to complete detailed
histories of tobacco-control policymaking and efforts by the tobacco industry to thwart these efforts in 24 states. These
interviews were designed to shed light on political activities of both sides, tobacco control programs, as well as histories
of tobacco industry campaign contributions and lobbying activities. As a part of the Center for the Tobacco Control, these
oral histories were funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The interviews were conducted by postdoctoral fellows
and other members of the research group at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education, under the supervision of
Stanton Glanz, PhD.
