Terris Moore was interviewed in 1993 by Mike Sfraga at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Terris was in poor health at the time of the interview, so his wife, Katrina, was present and assisted in helping Terris recall stories and details. Most of the recording's content concerns Terris flying Bradford Washington to the West Buttress of Mount McKinley (now Denali) in 1951 when he pioneered that route. Terris' flights were key to providing support to the Mountain.
