» After five years’ work, the Goldberg Center has completed the process of transferring Harvey Goldberg’s lectures from their current audio cassette format onto compact discs. The fruits of these labors are now available for listening in three formats: (1.) short audio samples below on this site’s “Home” page; (2.) selected lecture series on Compact Discs (CDs) available for purchase by clicking the blue hot link above left; and, (3.) the complete collection of original tapes and CDs, as itemized below, which are deposited in the Archives of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We thank Sidney Iwanter for his generous contribution of tapes from the 1970-1971 academic year.
