The Hayek Interviews as a Great Resource

Summary:
The oral history project at UCLA is a treasure trove for Hayek scholars.  As I was working through my book, I spent a tremendous amount of time watching, listening and reading material from this source.  You can find the material all collected at UFM, but also on You Tube and at UCLA you can find the entire transcript of the conversations.  Hayek's memory is not 100% accurate, but his insights I would argue come shining through.  The strongest interviews are with Alchian, Buchanan and Leijonhufvud.
