Ronald Fraser, distinguished historian of Spain, author of In Hiding: The Life of Manuel Cortes, Blood Of Spain: An Oral History of the Spanish Civil War , Work: Twenty Personal Accounts, and In Search of the Past, and ‘one of the masters of oral history’, has died.
An obituary by Tariq Ali was in The Guardian yesterday. For those with access to the Oral History Journal , there’s a nice piece with Ronald Fraser from 1980: Ronald Fraser and Jim Kelly: An Interview with Ronald Fraser (Oral History Vol. 8, No. 1, (Spring, 1980), pp. 52-57)
