When Ted spoke in different venues across the decades, he developed the habit of recording himself as a means of self improvement. Though many of his recordings were of poor technical quality, after several years, Elizabeth Gemmel was able to edit and create mp3 files of good quality–though some will be better than others. Thank you, also, to Janice Cannell for the many hours of listening and preparing the transcripts. Each transcript is available for download (click the blue button).
