      Abstract

      This paper explores legal, ethical and human rights issues of conducting oral
      history interviews and focuses on problematic factors related to depositing the
      resultant audiotapes and transcripts in archives. Methods of protecting those
      who may be harmed in anyway by the tapes or transcripts being open to public
      access are identified. The potential ethical and legal consequences for
      researchers are explored. The interviews were part of an historical research
      study into the history of Nursing in the two West Yorkshire towns of Halifax
      and Huddersfield, United Kingdom (UK) between 1870-1960. The two
      methodological approaches were analysis of the primary and secondary
      documentary archival sources, and oral history interviewing of a sample of
      twenty-one retired nurses ranging from 65-97 years old representative of
      location and career experience to ensure a strategic purposive sample. The
      resultant audiotapes and transcripts will be stored in the archives of The
      University of Huddersfield.
