Daniel J. Clark

Daniel Clark is a professor of history at Oakland University. He began his oral history career in graduate school at Duke University in the 1980s. He has written two books that relied heavily on oral history, Like NIght and Day: Unionization in a Southern Mill Town (University of North Carolina Press, 1997), and Disruption in Detroit: Autoworkers and the Elusive Postwar Boom (University of Illinois Press, 2018). A companion book to Disruption in Detroit, based almost entirely on oral history interviews with retired autoworkers, is in the works. In addition, with Oakland University sociologist Graham Cassano, he is also developing the Pontiac Oral History Project, which focuses on the post-WWII history of Pontiac, Michigan.
