Oral History

Transcripts of interviews available

To be a public resource for scholars, students, and anyone who is seeking inquiry into this rich history, this page will provide full transcripts of the oral histories that appear on this site. Considering the fact that transcribing is a time consuming process, we will update this page when the edited transcripts are completed. All transcripts are edited for clarity.

None of the views expressed by the interviewees reflect the values, beliefs, and mission of the Cleveland Restoration Society.
