Taped interview; loaned photos for copying; file includes a limited amount of correspondence and a print from slide taken during the interview. Most of the interview is captured on the following transcription, except for a preliminary portion where he showed me his collection of photographs and artifacts. A number of photographs were subsequently copied for the park’s museum collection with Mr. Howe’s permission.
