UConn Extension’s Historical Transcripts

These are transcripts of interviews with agricultural production, researchers, legislators, and commercial commodity vendors from Connecticut which were conducted in 1999 and 2000 by Luanne Lange, Professional Extension Specialist. Her goal was to record the history of agricultural interests lived by a variety of individuals in the early 20th century pursuant to a transition in Connecticut agriculture from a predominant family farm to the more industrial atmosphere of the 21st century. The actual voice recording cassettes may be found in the UCONN Babbidge Library
Archives Division.  Select a name below to view the interview transcript.
