PULLMAN, Wash. – Oral histories collected from past Washington State University faculty members provide absorbing recollections of WSU history from the early 1950s on.
 
They include a conversation with a legislator about truth and accountability; recollection of a campus that had just one computer and reflection on the relationship between scientists and their mothers.
