Year: 1985

Author: White, Dick

Type of paper: Abstract refereed

This is a case study of the researcher's own memory for events taken part in or witnessed in 1979. After six years, only a small proportion of events can be recalled clearly. Rarity and vividness are important determiners of recallability. Memory for date of event is much worse than memory for time of day. There are implications for teaching and for oral history research.
