The Explorers Club of Jefferson Junior High School, Champaign, Ill., interviewed W. H. Grant, a Spanish-American War veteran, on Oct. 1, 1962. In this tape recording of the interview, Grant discusses the eagerness of people to volunteer for service at the outbreak of the war, the military mortality rate from disease in Cuba, the climate in the Caribbean, and reveals that Theodore Roosevelt's famous charge was not really made on San Juan Hill.
Dr. John W. McClure of the University of Iowa donated the recording to the Survey.
