REMARKS: This is an interview with Bert Laurance. It takes place on September 25, 1978 at the County Treasurer's Office. The interviewer is Star Eatherington.
In this interview Mr. Laurance talks about his home life at Dillard. He talks about the 22 acres that his father owned out there in Dillard. He remembers the place before there was even the old Highway 99 going through there. He talks about the vegetables and the fruits that were raised there and the watermelons and the cantaloupes. He talks a little bit about Roseburg and about some of his trips into Roseburg, in his early days. He talks a little bit about his parens and why his parents moved to Oegon from North Carolina. A little bit later on he talks about the County Treasurer's Office and how it has changed through the years. Unfortunately there was a lawn mower thata starts up outside his window half way through the interview which is very loud.
