Historical Interviews, Talks, and Articles

One of the charges of the AESHC is to "record oral histories (sound only, sound with video, and/or sound with still photographs) of important figures in the history of audio engineering." We encourage all of our members to record oral histories, and submit them (or transcripts of them) to the Chair of the AESHC for consideration for inclusion on this website. Currently, only a few are available, and these are the following papers and talk transcripts:

  • Ray Dolby's personal tour of the audio industry and how it changed from analog to digital, a transcript of his 1992 Heyser lecture
