This is a typescript of an interview with Foster Arnett that documents his memories of growing up in Knoxville. In the first half, he describes his youth, his time at the University of Tennessee, and the changes he saw around Knoxville through the years. His family was very influential in the creation of the Smoky Mountains National Park, which he discusses in some depth.
