The papers of Joseph H. Fichter, S.J., document the life of a priest, scholar, and social reformer. As a pioneer in the sociology of religion and as a champion of social justice, Father Fichter has frequently found himself embroiled in controversy and conflict. That vigorous engagement with his times is reflected in these papers, which shed light upon the Catholic Church, the Society of Jesus, academic sociology, and the quest for social reform.
These audiotapes contain interviews conducted by Fr. Fichter including those related to his research on Alcoholic Clergy.
