Heritage 1: Brothers Lantz

These are the four eldest sons of James Earl Lantz (1925-2014) and Louise Christina Dinkel Lantz (1926-2018). This conversation was recorded on June 7, 2020, two days before Jim’s 70th birthday. Topics of discussion included their parents and grandparents, watchmaking, growing up across Keene, Brattleboro, and Newport, the role ski-jumping in the family, and meaningful moments in each of the brothers' lives.
