There are many interviews by AA conductors and operators throughout Ohio and the rest of the U.S. One may search by surname, county, state & many other filters for specific areas of UGRR research activity.

An example of the interviews may be seen with this 5 page interview of George W.S. Lucas, a "colored" UGRR operative.

In this interview Mr. Lucas notes AA operators in the Ohio cities of Xenia, Springfield, Troy, Piqua, Bellefontaine, Kenton, Rushsylvania, Yellow Springs and others by name and location. Great reading!!!

Happy Black History Month,

Art Thomas
