Chris Brooks has resided at Salmon Beach for more than two decades, and he was the ideal subject for a follow-up interview (see also SBOH #007) under this semester’s theme of “cabin history,” as he’s been involved in the construction of numerous cabins at the beach, including his own (#76). In this interview, Chris talks at some length about the process of constructing cabin 76, and the overarching salvage ideology that characterizes both his cabin and Salmon Beach’s history. This interview is a bevy of valuable detail.

This is the second interview with Richard that’s now a part of this oral history collection (see also SBOH#004). The theme for this round of interviews was “cabin history.” Richard is one of the oldest Salmon Beach residents on the beach, and he talks at length here about the Chicken Coop and Cabin 69, as well as some of the other cabins in which he resided over the years. He also spends some time talking about how land ownership changed Salmon Beach, and in usual Richard fashion, he covers a variety of other topics (including the sexual habits of both chickens and hippies) with great panache.
