Paul Renard opened the meeting stressing the importance of conducting interviews with active and retired workers. He said retirees will be an essential part of the projects. Their interviews provide information that help researchers find valuable documents. He also said that interviewees may remain anonymous, that security concerns will be dealt with, and all material will be reviewed for classified information before being released.
Tom Widner spoke second. He summarized the project's goals and methods, gave a brief progress report, and detailed the interviewing process.
The meeting concluded with public comments and questions.
