Materials comprise audio recordings of oral history interviews conducted in 2009 and 2010 by the American Museum of Ceramic Art in conjunction with their 2011-2012 exhibition, "Common Ground: Ceramics in Southern California 1945-1975." The exhibition examined both the cohesiveness and the diversification found within the Los Angeles-area, post-World War II clay community. The exhibition and related interviews were part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project; the project website describes the exhibition as follows: "The decades following World War II saw tremendous growth and experimentation in studio and industrial ceramics. Artist Millard Sheets (1907-1989), a leading educator and designer, exerted considerable influence on a multitude of Los Angeles-area art institutions. Sheets' strongly-held concept of 'good design' acted as a catalyst in forming ceramic practices and opinions about art, interiors, and architecture."
Please note that although a video interview was conducted with Betty Davenport Ford, the disc received by the Getty Institutional Archives was not readable and the interview is therefore not listed here with the AMOCA materials. Audio excerpts and an unedited transcript from the Ford interview can be found below in the Huntington Library materials related to the exhibition, "The House that Sam Built."
Additional information on this exhibition can be found on the PST website at
Materials are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the interviewee.
The recordings exist solely in digital format (discs that were transferred to the Archives on optical discs). The discs act as archival masters and are therefore restricted. The recordings are open to researchers are available online.
