Under cued and noncued conditions in 3 sessions held 1 wk apart, 2 age groups, each composed of 28 female students (18-25 and 35-55 yrs), were presented with immediate and delayed free-recall tasks. Two historical prose passages were used as test materials to determine whether there were age-related differences in recall and whether living through an era facilitated the learning and recall of events of that era. There were no overall significant age differences in recall; living through an era slightly helped recall. A significant Age Group by Time interaction indicated higher immediate recall for the younger group, particularly of the more difficult prose material but no between-groups differences in recall after 1 wk on any of the prose material.
