Studs was rebellious and supportive in the left community in Chicago during
the reign of the first Mayor Daley, and I've alway liked him. But it's time
that people began to think of the Popular Front overlay in his oral
histories. Many of his unedited tapes are in the Chicago Historical Society.
It would be useful to compare the full versions with the versions that were
published, with attention to what was edited out to fit Studs's larger
message.
