I discovered an interesting interview with my father, conducted in 1996, that's available on-line. It mostly covers his life and experiences up to 1976, when he left the Foreign Service to begin his career as an academic at the University of Texas in Austin. Somehow, I'd never seen it before. The link is below the title.
