Samuel B. Chilton, a member of the prominent Charleston family who owned the Charleston Gazette, has spent a lifetime in the center of West Virginia's capitol. A knowledgeable person, his interview is lively and spicy, full of some rather risque anecdotes. Mr. Chilton and his interviewers discuss the development of St. Albans and Charleston, the West Virginia state government, the Roosevelts and the Rockefellers in West Virginia, sports, horse and dog racing, and prostitution. More personally, Mr. Chilton also discusses his childhood, family and friends.
Interview is included in the Marshall University Oral History Collection. The index number is OH64-120.
