In May 1997 I had an hour and a half conversation with Stana to gather background information for the newsletter. I used an analog Sony micro cassette recorder to back up my note taking. We covered how the Isemans became involved with the Society, family history, funding and a host of other subjects. 20 years later the recordings are far more important than anything I could have written. We were outdoors so there is occasional wind noise. At the end of the second tape we go into the mansion and discuss ongoing projects.
