Hello,

I'm Monique Delatte Starkey, one of the librarians here at Fullerton College Library. I assisted in answering this question in August of 2016 -- the answer follows: 

I double-checked the oral histories under Robert Coles, but I didn’t see anything either.  However, neither Robert Coles nor Kenneth B. Clark had any connection that I can see with Fullerton College so they wouldn’t be in the archives on our college history.   I have a  feeling that the interview referenced was probably lost some time ago because it should have been in the catalog. We still have cassettes, but not this one.  I did find another copy of the cassette listed at Quincy University so perhaps Dr. Clark can obtain it through interlibrary loan. I’ve attached the bibliographic info.

 

I also checked WorldCat and this is a more complete list of libraries with the cassette:

 

I hope this helps.

Here is the rest of the thread:

>> Hi, I am a professor at Florida State University College of Social Work, and am working on a book about Robert Coles, MD.  I am seeking a copy of Kenneth B Clark's interview with Dr Coles: "Poverty is black and white".  I have seen this referenced as being in your collection.  Can you help me with this request? Many thanks!

I didn't see a related file in the interview cabinet, but the archivist will have a better idea of where to look for the interview referenced in the LSU Press title: "Brown v. Board and the Transformation of American Culture: Education and the South in the Age of Desegregation."

My father has seen Dr. Coles speak and had the opportunity to ask Dr. Coles a question regarding psychotherapy. Best of luck with your research! I hope that our archivist returns with good news soon.

 

Monique, Thanks a million!  The connection with your dad and Dr Coles is very cool!
