I learned things in the course of doing oral histories thatwere not easily documented from official school records orpersonal and scientific letters. For example, in the course ofinterviewing a senior member of the biology department, thepolicies and procedures of the Undergraduate Admissions Committeebetween World Wars I and II came up in the discussion. Thebiologist had joined the committee in the late 1940s, as a youngassistant professor. Much to his surprise, he realized after abit that the older committee members kept careful track of Jewishstudents applying to Caltech. While this practice was widespreadat Ivy League schools before World War II, I had never read orheard of such a quota system in use at Caltech. I got hold of alist of the members of the admissions committee during Millikan'sera, and then picked up the phone and called a member of thecommittee.

We want to get that in people's heads and provide some useful feedback when the orbs change color."
