Interview with James Peck
QUESTION 28
INTERVIEWER:

WAS IT AS MAGNIFICENT AND HISTORICAL A MOMENT AS IT SEEMS TO BE WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AT IT?

James Peck:

That CORE would have gone under in the McCarthy era had it not been for uh Farmer's wife, myself and a guy called Jim Robinson. And uh, so I feel… like an affirmative answer to that question.
