Oral histories document early Clinton years





LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Some of Bill Clinton's friends and family remember the Arkansas native as a charismatic boy destined for greatness, while others recall him as a shy youth who played the clarinet.

Such first impressions are among the text of 28 interviews documenting the former president's early years in Hope and Hot Springs as part of a project that aims to make Clinton the most documented president ever.

The interviews were released Tuesday by the Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History, which is part of the University of Arkansas Libraries at Fayetteville.
