    Biographical/Historical note

    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.
