Douglas Brinkley to Do Oral Histories of Katrina
On C-Span Doiglas Brinkley, the Tulane historian, says that he plans to begin taking oral histories from Katrina victims and officials.
Brinkley fled to Houston after the hurricane hit New Orleans. He returned later to try to help the victims.
He told Brian Lamb that the oral histories will be taken under the auspices of the Roosevelt center, which he heads.

I listened to Doug Brinkley's discussions with Kathrina callers on CSpan this evening and want to invite everyone to tune into CSpan the next time Brinkley is scheduled to appear. Yes he is articulate on a variety of issues and I would elect him to any public office he would so honor this nation to accept.
