The IFUP published "A Conversation with W. Donald Cooke", an interview by Charles Wilcox recorded on 14 April 2006, a year and half before his death. A segment of that was presented during the memorial held on 20 September 2007. The memorial in its entirety forms the core of the present Collection. Individual speeches by Hector Abruna, Dale Corson, Joe Ballantyne, Harold Scheraga, Fred McLafferty, Ben Widom, Tim Cooke, and a self portrait of Don's early years as recorded on April 14 2006 excerpted from the "A Conversation with W. Donald Cooke" are part of this memorial.
