Harry P. Leu – Interviewed by Hattabel Hyer on June 1, 1974. Miss Hyer knew just about everyone and liked to visit and chat with them. This recording lets us listen in on one of her visits with Mr. Leu in his old age. They discuss his knack for success, the Mizell family cemetery, his giving the garden property to the city and lots in between.
Mr. Leu was born in 1884 in the Leu home in Orlando and died in 1977.
We are grateful for the Orange County Regional History Center‘s making this recording available for Orlando Memory.
