AfriGeneas Military Research Forum Archive
As part of my research I have begun to conduct a series of taped phone interviews (on my dime) with a wide range of people who have written about, spoken out, or otherwise expressed their views about Flipper. This list includes historians, librarians, archivists, writers, artists, military and civilian lawyers, army officers,
Basically this is what I am asking:
. What "brought" you to Flipper's story.
. what sources (primary, secondary or a mix) have you used to gather information aboutFlipper
. what sources impressed you the most--the least
. what is your view on the "fairness" of Flipper's court-martial
. what is your opinion of fairly recent and more recent developments in Flipper's tale (here I mean the l976 posthumous army honorable discharge and the l999 presidential pardon).
I'd be delighted to talk with anyone with a view on Flipper. The phone interviews take between 30 min. and an hour.
