Susan Kaeser lived in Wisconsin through graduate school. She earned a master of urban planning degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, during which time she met Cleveland City Planning Director Norman Krumholz. Krumholz brought her to Cleveland to serve as a city planner. When she arrived in Cleveland in 1976 she lived first in the Ludlow neighborhood near Shaker Square before moving to Cleveland Heights in 1979. In the interview she discusses how she became a community activist, the state of integration in Cleveland Heights in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and her involvement in the early years of Reaching Heights, an organization dedicated to promoting community support of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights school system.
