Richard Turner, 2017 (SBOH#010)
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.
