Abstract

In this oral history interview, Jeff Greene, the founder and chairman of Evergreen Architectural Arts Company, speaks with Andy Huse, Jill Witecki, and Joey Hagar about the design choices at the Tampa Theatre. Jeff Greene elaborates on his work restoring historic buildings, specifically atmospheric theaters. He illustrates his knowledge of the history of design and decoration techniques used in the 1910s and 1920s, as well as details about John Eberson's family and his unique decorating style. Jeff Greene also mentions his interest in taking on Tampa Theatre restoration projects because his employee, Jed Ellis, was interested in theaters.
