Most of the interviews were transferred to VHS in August 1990.
Summary:
H.R. Crawford, a national property manager and Vice President of Polinger-Crawford Corporation, speaks about his business, moderate to low income housing programs, the history of Park Southern Apartments, tenant management, tenant complaints, and owner and tenant relationship, misunderstandings, and responsibilities. He states housing programs focused on moderate and low income housing are not working because they were not designed to work realistically in the first place, and the solution lies in modifying programs. He believes the development of single family housing would improve conditions in Anacostia.
