Description: On March 14, 1999, I interviewed Bradford Perkins. Professor Sidney Fine had recommended that I give Mr. Perkins a call. This interview was conducted at his home, which is just outside of Ann Arbor. In 1935, Mr. Perkins was born in Rochester, N.Y.. He entered the war in 1942 and had fought in the European theater. At Harvard University, after the war, he met his wife, who unfortunately passed away about six years ago. Now, he has two living children. Currently, Mr. Perkins is a Professor Emeritus in the University of Michigan's history department, where he taught a number of general courses, specifically American Diplomatic History. Professor Perkins has written an article entitled, "Impressions of Wartime," which was published in The Journal of American History. Currently, he is writing a book.
