Introduction:
The Smithsonian Institution Archives began its Oral History Program in 1973. The purpose of the program is to supplement the written documentation of the Archives' record and manuscript collections with an Oral History Collection, focusing on the history of the Institution, research by its scholars, and contributions of its staff. Program staff conduct interviews with current and retired Smithsonian staff and others who have made significant contributions to the Institution. There are also reminiscences and interviews recorded by researchers or students on topics related to the history of the Smithsonian or the holdings of the Smithsonian Institution Archives.

The Alan Stone Oral History Interviews were recorded to document his contributions to the field of entomology.
Descriptive Entry:
These interviews of Stone, by Smithsonian Archives historian Pamela M. Henson, cover his childhood and education, his reminiscences of entomologists at Cornell University, the staff of the National Museum of Natural History, relations between the Smithsonian Institution and U.S. Department of Agriculture, his involvement in the Cosmos Club and Washington Biologists' Field Club, and colleagues such as Charles P. Alexander, John F. G. Clarke, Herbert Friedmann, Curtis W. Sabrosky, and Alexander Wetmore.

This collection contains three interview sessions, totaling approximately 3 hours of recording. There are two generations of tape for each session: original tapes and reference tapes. In total, this collection is comprised of 3 original audio cassette tapes and 3 reference copy audio cassette tapes. The original tapes are reserved in preservation storage. The interviews have not been transcribed.

Restrictions: The interviews of Alan Stone do not have recording or transcript deed of gift forms. Researchers may submit a written request to interviewee's heirs or assigns for written permission to use the recording or transcript.
