Oral History Series Update
Oral histories are an important part of the institutional memory and heritage of SFCP. The project began in 1994, when Jane Hewitt, MD, completed the first interview with Bryce C. Boyer, MD. Unfortunately, Dr. Hewitt passed away after completing that first interview, and the project was continued by Linda Goettina, DMH, and Susanna Bonetti, both former library directors of SFPI&S/SFCP. In recent months, Eric Rosen has been converting these tapes to DVD format and adding them to the permanent circulating collection of the SFCP Library. New interviews with Stanley Steinberg, MD, (interviewed by Bronwen Lemmon, MFT) and Robert Wallerstein, MD, (interviewed by Sue von Baeyer, PhD and Israel Katz, MD) have supplemented this project. The list of oral histories is included below. Those marked as “circulating” may be borrowed from the SFCP Library.
Thanks to Susanna Bonetti for providing detailed information about the origins and progress of the Oral History recordings.

Oral History Subcommittee: Call for Participation
An Oral History Subcommittee has formed at SFCP as a branch of the Library Committee. This new subcommittee aims to identify future oral history participants, coordinate logistics and guide the overall direction of SFCP’s oral history project. Composed of Sue von Baeyer, PhD, Bronwen Lemmon, MFT, Susanna Bonetti, Administrative Director at the Masonic Center for Youth and Families and former SFCP Library Director, and Alyson Barrett-Ryan, current SFCP Library Director, the subcommittee met in December 2012 for the first time to discuss future themes and participants. We would like to invite the SFCP membership to participate in this project; your involvement could include interviewing another analyst, providing an interview for SFCP’s collection, filming an interview, creating a transcript or merely contributing ideas. Please contact Alyson Barrett-Ryan if you would like to be involved with the SFCP Oral History project: email@example.com
Introducing Stephanie Donnelly, Volunteer Archivist
SFCP is pleased to welcome Stephanie Donnelly as our new volunteer archivist. Stephanie, a native of Salinas, recently received her Masters of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. At San Jose State, she specialized in Archival Studies and Records Management, which focused on the organization, interpretation, preservation, and management of materials created in the present and those inherited from the past. This program complemented her previous employment with the Department of Defense, where she worked as an Archive Technician at the Defense Language Institute (DLI). During her time at the DLI, Stephanie organized documents ranging in scope from early 20th century military journal entries and photographs to modern-day administration records of the DLI and the former Fort Ord. Propelled by her love for history, Stephanie has a passion for making historical materials accessible to researchers and the public. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys painting, cooking, and exploring all the unique activities San Francisco has to offer. Stephanie has begun processing the SFCP archival papers, and she will continue to help the Center develop and discover our rich historical resources. Welcome, Stephanie!

The SFCP Library holds hundreds of contemporary and historical audiovisual resources including lectures, presentations, symposiums, seminars and other events held at, or in conjunction with, the Center. Program chairpersons or coordinators who wish to film an event held at SFCP can borrow the Center’s camera to create a recording. Permission to record must be obtained from program presenters. The resulting recording will be part of the library’s collection and will be governed by library policies. We are not able, at this time, to offer copies of DVDs or CDs to program presenters due to high production costs.
Restricted clinical material is available for use by analyst members and candidates onsite.
