I don’t know anything about this particular item, but I also interviewed Midd De Visconti—and a couple of dozen other Farmville and former Farmville residents—for the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina during the summer of 1977. The tapes to my interviews are all held in the Southern Historical Collection at UNC in Chapel Hill.
