Those interviewed were Mrs. Lee Anderson, Dr. Charlton Moseley and Mrs. Willie Lee Moseley, James Rigdon, and Mary Lee Jones Tucker. Interviewees remembered Daniel Edgar Bland and his wife Catherine as well as their farm, Magnolia Springs. Mr. and Mrs Bland both attended First District Agricultural and Mechanical School. The land on which their farm thrived is now part of the University, and the homestead itself is now the University Botanical Gardens.
