Abstract

This is an oral history interview with former Congressman Sam Gibbons, who represented Tampa and Hillsborough County in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1963 to 1997 as well as both halves of the Florida Legislature. In this interview, Gibbons discusses the role he played in Tampa's urban renewal projects, describes the annexations of Palma Ceia and Port Tampa, and explains how the Hillsborough County Planning Commission was founded. Gibbons played a key role in creating the University of South Florida and establishing it at its campus in Tampa, a process which he also discusses in this interview.
