Nashville Zoo exists today due to the foresight of two ladies, Margaret and Elise Croft. In October 2018, Tori Mason, Nashville Zoo Historic Site Manager, and Jennifer Randles, TSLA Digital Materials Librarian, traveled to Florida and Cuba for research on the Croft sisters’ business. In Florida they conducted oral history interviews with 94-yr old Bradford Dallas, the man who was their business administrator, and who was in Havana during the Cuban Revolution. Several of his letters and other documents are on the the Tennessee Virtual Archive website (teva.contentdm.oclc.org). They also spent time in Havana traveling around to various locations associated with the Crofts and the Dallas family. Join us for this presentation on the research conducted on the Croft family's life in Cuba.
