The papers of J. Stanton McLaughlin consist of photographs of the Oberlin Dramatic Association’s productions, 1932-42, and twenty-one cassette tape letters of James McLaughlin. The tapes contain letters to Alice and Chester Shaver, Dorothy Daub, Caroline Fenn, and Andrew and Laurine Bongiorno, 1979-85. McLaughlin’s eyesight failed him in later life, and the tapes provided a means to correspond with others. In addition to the contents of the letters (i.e., Oberlin, German politics, events of the day), the method of correspondence (the audio tapes) is evidence of how a handicapped individual communicated with others.
