Only rarely were personal interviews conducted with people who sowed the first intellectual seeds of the community land trust movement or with those who helped to bring the first CLTs into being. The few that exist are collected here.
- Ralph Borsodi (1974)
- John Emmeus Davis (2011)
- Roz Greenstein (2007)
- Charles Sherrod (1982)
- Bob Swann (1992)
- Group Interview with the Pioneers of New Communities (1971)
We plan to supplement these meager holdings over the next few years by recording oral histories with the founders of many local CLTs in the United States – and elsewhere. Some interviews will be recorded in audio; some in video. Lightly edited transcripts of every interview will be posted here, as they become available.
