Here's one from 1986 interviewing controversial hobby figure Walter Breen.
ANA Numismatic Personality: Walter Breen David Lisot, Interviewer.
Breen was a pioneering numismatic author and researcher, known for the award-winning (and still referenced today) Walter Breen's Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins. He was interviewed again in 1988 - see the links below for more information.
He wrote a letter to the editor of The Numismatist in 1950 concerning the Confederate Dollar restrike, and attended his first ANA convention 1952.
He performed original research in the National Archives and knew Wayte Raymond, Stuart Mosher, and William Sheldon. He related the harrowing story of the time he was riding as Mosher had a heart attack while driving the car.
