Voices: Past and Present

This section is being developed to preserve some of the classic speeches and interviews in the area of stuttering. It will begin with audiotapes from some of those professionals who have left an important mark on the field of speech-language pathology, in the area of Fluency and Fluency Disorders. We hope to build this collection as time permits and as others share similar tapes to those below. Tapes will be limited for now to audio tapes and should be no longer than a half hour. If anyone has a tape they'd like to share, and if permission is granted to put it online, please contact Judith Kuster. This project gratefully acknowledges the help of MSU, Mankato tech staff, especially Christian Andrew Dinger and Agnes Lumenta, and Bill Fabian, Australia, as well as those who shared tapes (Ed Feuer, Steve Hood, Jane Fraser, Fred Murray, and Woody Starkweather) and those who gave their permission to put them online.

Information on how long will it take to download these files and how to play these files after they are downloaded. (IMPORTANT: please note the size of each of the files).
