Morris Udall served as a U.S. Representative for Arizona from 1961 to 1991, and he was known for his intelligence and wit. This intriguing collection created by The University of Arizona Library brings together dozens of spoken recollections "that illuminate the lives and careers of Congressman Udall and the Udall family." The topics covered within these interviews include Alaska wilderness preservation, Congressional history, early Arizona history, and "the role of poker-playing in congressional politics." The funding for this project came from the Morris K. Udall Foundation, and visitors can search the interviews, or just browse around. The persons interviewed here include Senator Alan K. Simpson, Cliff Robertson, Senator John McCain, and President Gerald Ford. Anyone with an interest in the history of government in the United States will find this oral history collection quite engaging.
