About this talk
Interview of Suzuki Roshi by Peter Schneider
[From almost the very first, for a while very hard to understand because mike is on the tape recorder. But it has been checked pretty closely and I think it's 99.9% right. -- DC- circa 1996] [I spent a week going over these tapes and making sure of the of the transcription. A lot of it is almost impossible to hear. I was very pleased when I found an earlier transcription by Katherine Thanas that was almost identical to mine. Date in question in my mind. Might be interview associated with lecture on Miss Ransom of 69-11-09. In parts of this interview Suzuki and Schneider are looking at the Curriculum Vitae Suzuki and Kobun Chino had made (69-09-16-W). Often they did not identify what on the CV they were discussing. Suggest to read edited versions where I spent a lot of time trying to make sense of this and other sections and interviews and organizing the information more logically. -- DC, 3-09] Entered onto disk by DC -1996 or so.
